Parcyrhun Primary School has taken part in an event in celebration of National Walk to School week with Communities First and the Road Safety Team.
The event took place at the Haven Vets car park, where Gary Go Safe guided the children to safety with the schools crossing patrol, before the start of school.
Each child was given a high visibility vest, sticker and information of road safety. All parents and guardians were spoken to by the road safety team about staying safe when out and about near busy roads. Parents were also urged to make use of the car parking facilities near the vets to alleviate the congestion in the mornings outside the school and to protect the safety of the children.
The school crossing patrol operates on Penybanc Road during opening and closing times of the school to ensure the safety of parents and their children walking to the school.
Emma Martin-Jewell of Communities First said: “The event was a resounding success, with approximately 40 participants including parents, grandparents, and children. Community and road safety is an important aspect of Communities First and running events like this raises the profile and awareness of these issues.”
