Blackboys CE School Year 6’s recently attended a Wealden District Council, Safety In Action Day at Herstmonceux Castle.
This was one of many days which the council organise for local schools to attend with their Year 6’s.
The idea of the day is that children go round in small groups, attending ‘safety’ scenarios which include; stranger danger, rail tracks, social media and fire safety all these activities are done in a role play scenario, some of which the pupils wouldn’t necessarily know it was.
Blackboys CE School achieved the highest marks in the road safety element in the event. On Friday, 07th July at 9am the whole school came together to be presented with a shield and cheque.
Mrs Debbie Reeve presented the shield in memory of her son who sadly died on a Wealden road and a cheque for £250 to the School (money donated by Servomex, Crowborough). Wealden organiser Sophie Hepworth and Cllr Chris Hardy, Chairman of Wealden DC presented certificates to Year 6 children.
