Our Junior Road Safety Officers attended a borough event called 'The Junior Road Safety Conference'
The children particpated in a variety of events one of which was 'The Dragon's den ' where they had do a presentation and bid for funding to pay for an activity or resources that would promote safer travel.
The children pitched their idea for a whole school competition to design a Road Safety mascot. This mascot will be displayed outside the school and will be showing the school children the legal car seat height, it will be a way for children and parents to check to see if they should have a car seat. The mascot will then be used as an incentive for other Road Safety ideas.
The dragons thought the children's idea was unique and a good way to get everyone aware of Road Safety, they thought it was a good idea to display the legal car seat height as many people do not know it. The dragons thought that the children needed a reward or prize for the winning design.
