Last Friday students in Post 16 took part in 'Glow Day'. This is The Child Brain Injury Trust’s ‘Be Seen, Not Hurt’ Autumn Safety Campaign to spread the important message of road safety in schools across the UK.
Staff from Irwin Mitchell’s Leeds office visited Post 16, with the Child Brain Injury Trust to give them tips on staying safe when crossing roads outside school and when using bicycles.
Road traffic accidents are the biggest cause of death and disability among young children in the UK and also the main cause of acquired brain injuries amongst them too.
Our students did really well answering questions about keeping safe and it was lovely to see how much information our students had remembered from their Road Safety sessions! They also got some top tips from Carmel and Alan about wearing bright colours to be seen on these darker nights. Students had great fun trying on the brain hat!
A huge thank you to Carmel and Alan for coming in and doing such a useful and informative presentation!
