Road safety week
Children at Avalon School have been keen to help get the message across about road safety.
Following a Road Safety session in the classroom, the children were asked if they would like to take part in a Kids' Court Project organised by Merseyside Police and Wirral Council. So, on Monday 21 November, the police, the television cameras and the radio presenters arrived at school. As motorists were caught driving over the speed limit outside school, they were escorted up to the school hall where the panel of children asked them questions. The children approached their job with great maturity and confidence. They were given the opportunity to watch the police officer with the speed gun and to go inside a traffic control vehicle with a speed camera inside. Our Year 6 children then appeared on the front page of the Wirral Globe and on the ITV news.
