Two competitions were held, design a Safety Helmet and invent a Car Seat to meet your own specific needs. We had our work cut out deciding the winners, so Speeding Ted helped us. He said they were all fabulous.

The citizenship group came up with the idea of designing the ideal outfit to wear in winter, allowing drivers to see them in the dark mornings and nights.

JRSO Slogan Competition

North Lanarkshire
07 Apr 2014

This years Slogan Competition was a great success with more than 200 entries being received.  The focus was on raising awareness of being safe when travelling in the car.

The winning entry came from Declan O'Brien, a P5 pupil from St Edward's Primary School in Airdrie  - "If you travel near or far, use your seatbelt in the car.”  This highlights the importance of using seatbelts.  No matter how short the car journey may be, people should ALWAYS remember to wear their seatbelts. The risk of a fatal injury is reduced by 50% when you wear a seatbelt.

Second place went to Nicole Watson from Muir Street Primary School in Motherwell with “Haud yer weesht an’ gie the driver some peace” and Cian Dickson from St Aloysius’ Primary School in Airdrie came third with “Don’t be quick 2 go 4A drive, pull and click to stay alive”.

Well done to our winners and everyone who entered the competition.  Judging wasn't easy as there were many good slogans.

Thank you to all JRSO's for promoting the competition.  Keep up the good work

Drink/ drug Driving

North Lanarkshire

Hi we're Kathleen and Marc the JRSO's from St. Joseph's primary. We are about to organise our first competition which will be to design a poster to illustrate the dangers of drink/drug driving for P6 and 7. We thought this was quite appropriate as it gets nearer to Christmas. We will award prizes to the best 3 posters.
