TWO safety-conscious pupils of Tattenhall Park Primary School launched their own initiative to help their peers keep safe whilst walking to and from school.
Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSOs) Nicole Leech and George Miller decided that the pupils in their school should be safe at all times, so set about making more than 100 orange and yellow fluorescent armbands for the youngsters to wear.
They applied to their school council for funding and came up with a design prototype which was used as a template for the rest of the bands.
The thoughtful pupils took their lead from the national road safety campaign ‘See Me Stay Safe’ which provided children from schools across the area with hi-visibility vests.
Their unique bright bands are worn with the vests on the upper arm and worn over the school coat comfortably.
George and Nicole presented the armbands to all junior pupils during a special school assembly.
Nicole said: “George and I wanted to do something to help the juniors be safe and seen when it is dark.
“We hope these armbands will help drivers take notice and drive more carefully.”
Headteacher Laura Noble said: “I think it’s extraordinary and will help keep all our children safer on the roads.”
