Central Primary School’s winning road safety designs
30 January 2018
Budding artists from Central Primary School in Port Talbot have been busy creating new road safety leaflets to help keep their classmates safe on the road thanks to their design skills.
The purpose of the road safety leaflets is to warn motorists about the dangers of inconsiderate and illegal parking around the school gates and grounds. The pupils wanted this problem to change and show parents and guardians how to make a difference.
Neath Port Talbot Council’s Road Safety Team were delighted to hear about the children’s ideas and worked closely with the school to help alleviate this issue by helping them to create and select their designs.
In the forthcoming weeks, the pupils will be handing out their leaflets with Neath Port Talbot Council’s Road Safety Coordinator to parents, guardians and members of the public, highlighting the importance of road safety around the school gates.
Cabinet Member for Streetscene and Engineering, Councillor Ted Latham said: “Well done to all the pupils who have been working hard designing road safety leaflets and a special thank you to Lowri Roache, Casey McCourt, Mali Evans, Caden Warren and Lilly-May Howells who all came up with superb and winning designs.
“We are delighted by the support from teaching staff in tackling this growing concern outside our schools. The enthusiasm of the children has been clear to see and the quality of their work outstanding. We hope that parents and guardians take note of the pupils’ voice and listen to their advice”.
