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

Calendar Competition

South Ayrshire
22 Mar 2013

Muirhead Primary Troon

Our JRSO were busy promoting and organising a calendar competition in conjunction with the Road Safety team in Ayr and South Ayrshire Council. The theme was "Parking at our School". The competition required children to draw a picture promoting safe parking. Our JRSO’s prepared a speech which they presented to all the classes to let all pupils and staff know what was involved. They then gave each pupil an entry form on which to complete their design as well as a letter explaining to parents what was involved. They selected the three best entries, and gave out prizes. One of our entries was chosen by the local council to be made into their calendar and distributed to all council offices. The JRSO had their photograph taken along with the entry winner and local councillors and this was put in the local press.

Inverarity's bus safety competition

13 Feb 2013

Our school is in the country and lots of pupils travel by bus so we thought it would be a good idea to do a competition about bus safety. We printed off pictures of buses and asked pupils from the lower school to colour them in and draw people in the bus. The upper school had to draw their friends on the bus then write down the rules of being safe on the bus.

St Stepehen's PS - Bright Winter Jacket

North Lanarkshire
07 Nov 2012

Primary 1 & 2 designed bright jackets which they could wear in the cold dark winter days. They are bright and colourful so that traffic can see them when they are crossing the road. What a great job they did.
