The boys of 5th and 6th class have been learning about Road Safety. With the fine weather we've been having, some of the boys have begun to cycle to school and so we looked at Bike Safety in particular. The boys looked at educational videos, studied road signs and learned the rules of the road. We went through a checklist of all the features a bike must have to be road worthy and also the importance of wearing a helmet at all times was highlighted.
