Children and their parents took on a great challenge as our Green School Travel day of action to have a ‘Love our environment day!’ We began at the Pavilion hall and walked to school dressed in pink and red. We attended an initiative by the RSA called ‘Streetsmart’ for the duration of the school day.
StreetSmart is an exciting initiative set up by the Road Safety Authority which aims to bring issues of road safety to life for young school children. StreetSmart is designed for three distinct age groups: 4-5, 5-8 and 8-12 years. There is a combination of interactive activities available for each age group.
StreetSmart also involves a streetscape mat which invites children to carry out typical, everyday cycling or pedestrian tasks. They can dress up and adopt various roles such as a nurse, doctor, fire officer or ambulance driver. The Road Safety Authority representatives are on hand to coordinate the activities with the help of teachers at the school. It is an action packed, fun filled day that enhances the student’s knowledge of the rules of the road.
