It is sad to read the 2017 Department for Transport data for Wirral that recorded one child killed in a road accident and ten taken to hospital during the year.
In a hard-hitting play entitled ‘Time’, brought to our Year 9 PSHE classes by road safety education specialists Ginificent, students were presented with a tragic tale about a group of friends torn apart by a road accident. The play covered pedestrian and bus stop safety and the distractions we are all open to whilst on or near roads. The consequences of ignoring road safety and the choices that are open to us where clearly illustrated through the shock ending to the play.
Thanks to the Ginificent players and to Mrs Close, Subject Leader – PSHE, for helping us with our road safety awareness.
