A huge ‘THANK YOU’ to MST/Mr Taylor who very kindly provided a hi-vis vest for every child in the school. A fantastic piece of clothing to wear during National Road Safety Week…and every week!
The children were very excited to be given these and we hope that they are encouraged to wear them on their journey to and from school each day.
BE BRIGHT! BE SEEN!
ROAD SAFETY WEEK (15/11/21-19/11/21)
Every week should be Road Safety Week but during the week of 15th November we will be reminding the children about the importance of being safe and being seen, especially around this time of the year as winter draws in.
To prepare for this special emphasis we have had Noel (PSNI) in school this week visiting each of the P4-P7 classes and delivering important, age-appropriate sessions to the children. These have been very valuable and the children responded very responsibly to what they heard. A few pupils were very keen to let the officers know about all the questionable things that they see their parents do on the roads!
We would like to thank Noel for the time he has spent in Maghaberry Primary School this week and hope that the important messages that he shared will be remembered in the weeks and months ahead. A big thank you also for the light up armbands that were provided for the P6 and P7 children to help them be seen around the roads and footpaths of Maghaberry.
In February 2020 some children were randomly selected from each class to appear in the DoE Road Safety Calendars which are produced and distributed around all the Primary Schools and Nurseries in Northern Ireland.
The calendars are displayed in every classroom and help the staff to address specific road safety issues in a child-friendly way.
If your child was one of the pupils chosen then you should see them in one of the age-specific calendars below. Thanks to all the parents who gave permission for their children to take part and I hope spotting them in photos of various areas around the village will bring a wee smile to your face!
