Pupils record song to improve safety
Pupils in Oxfordshire have taken to the recording studio in a bid to improve safety at a dangerous crossing near their school.
Year 10 pupils at Didcot Girls School have recorded a song encouraging council bosses to upgrade a zebra crossing to a pelican crossing. They claim it is a danger spot after a pupil was hit by a car, following several near misses.
As part of their campaign, the pupils have also got people to sign a petition and put up posters in local shops.
Music teacher Lucy Jackson said: “The pupils have done so well pushing a campaign they feel really strongly about. It’s all their own work, without any help from the teachers.”
