visits Berrow School pupils for unique road safety lesson
safety was in the spotlight at Berrow School when a special safety
awareness day was held this month.
pupils were visited by a large DHL haulage lorry to illustrate road
safety and illustrate some of the dangers to the children.
event was part of a national safety training programme funded by
the DHL UK Foundation called Trucks and Child Safety (TACS).
programme aims to help keep children safe around larger vehicles
on the road and targets children aged seven to 11 years old as they
start to travel independently.
Donaghy, Clerk to the Governors, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "All
of the school took part. Our head teacher felt as summer is approaching
and the traffic will become a lot busier, it would be a good time
to reinforce road safety with the pupils as it is an essential life
skill. It proved to be a great learning experience for the children."
