Calendar Winner

South Ayrshire
26 Jan 2015

Abbie George, P7 pupil at Fisherton Primary School in Dunure, has won the Road Safety 2015 Calendar Competition with a wonderful drawing encouraging others to – Be Bright at Night. The winning design was selected from numerous entries from schools across South Ayrshire. The Ayrshire Roads Alliance’s Road Safety Team in partnership with Junior Road Safety Officers in each school organised the competition, helping to spread the important road safety campaign message of ‘look out for each other’. Each school's JRSO Committee selected three of the best entries then it was over to Councillor John McDowall, Portfolio Holder for Sustainability and Environment to carry out the very difficult task of choosing the winning image. Councillor McDowall said: “Abbie has done a great job in highlighting the need to be bright at night and many congratulations to her on winning this competition". Many congratulations to the school co-ordinator and JRSO pupils at Fisherton Primary for all their hard work.

Our Campaign

South Ayrshire
22 Mar 2013

Muirhead Primary Troon

We carried out a survey in the school car park. Over a 20 minute period, we counted 30 cars entering the car park. 2 were staff cleaners, 2 were disabled badge holders and 26 were inappropriate users. Things we noted were that: Pupils from Marr College were crossing through the car park using it as a shortcut. Adults were parking in our car park waiting to collect Marr College pupils. Adults were crossing the car park with Nursery children as a shortcut to go to the golf course. Although there are speed bumps cars were still driving very fast down the access road. Golfers were parking their cars in our car park then going to the golf course Drivers were parking with 2 wheels on the pavement of the access road A driver parked in the passing place at the top of the access road Cars were entering the car park at a fast speed. Drivers were not following the one way system in the car park Many cars were reversing into the car park. We are working very hard to change all this.

Ziggys Halloween Wish

28 Nov 2012

We went into the Primary 1 to 3 classes and told them the story of Ziggy Halloween Wish. We then fitted all the children with vis vests and explained how they worked also how important it was for them to wear it in the dark whilst out playing and walking to school. We went back 1 week later and rewarded all the children still wearing their vests with fluorescent pencils.

We had a great day at the Induction Day. Thank you for teaching us more about road safety. We liked the part where we were shown the JRSO website. We couldn't wait to get started and pass all the information we have learned onto other pupils in the school. This is Lauren and Zoe looking at a helmet that saved a boy's life.
