This term the Receptions have been learning about being responsible. To help us explore this concept we visited the SAPOL Road Safety Centre in Thebarton in Week 4. It was here that Senior Constable Matt guided us through various rules for when we are pedestrians on the footpath and taught us the road rules and signals for when we are riding a bike.
The children were all so excited to choose their own bike and helmet and it wasn’t long before we were let loose on the roads. For some children it was their very first bike ride! Luckily there were plenty of three-wheeled bikes and bikes with training wheels.
Those of us who were brave enough were pedestrians while the children negotiated roundabouts and traffic-light signals. A good day was had by all and will definitely be a highlight of our year.
