Online quiz launched in response to SCP cuts
Pupils taking part in a competition to design a logo and a poster have given a colourful face to a new road safety initiative born out of the loss of the school crossing patrol service in some parts of the country.
Chichester-based E-Training World has developed a new interactive online road safety quiz for children aged 5-15 years.
Graham Hurdle, managing director of E-Training World, said: “I have been involved in promoting road safety for more than 20 years.
“Our local school has lost its crossing patrol and my wife recently witnessed an incident where a child was almost run over. This brought home to us how important it is to teach young people how to be responsible when walking near a road, cycling or travelling in a vehicle.
“I am delighted at how enthusiastic the children have been about our road safety for kids programme. From the feedback and support we’re having from the broader road safety community I believe this system will be a huge benefit to kids all across the country.”
Emilie Belcher and Oliver Mitchell, from East Wittering Community Primary School in East Sussex, were named winners of the competition.
