Pupils at Invergarry Primary School enjoy road safety talk

Pupils at Invergarry Primary School enjoyed a change to their morning timetable as they took part in a road safety talk hosted by Morrison Construction and Police Scotland. The contractor also gave each pupil a personalised hi-vis vest and hat to help them be seen when they are out and about over the next few months.

The sessions were held ahead of Morrison Construction starting work at the school to build two classroom extensions, as well as carrying out a significant refurbishment programme.

A Police Scotland officer gave the talk to raise awareness about road safety and the importance of ensuring a safe journey to and from school, answering questions at the end of the session.

The talk at the school coincides with Road Safety Week, which is held annually from November 19 to 25 by the charity Brake.

Morrison Construction Corporate Social Responsibility Manager Sally Cooper said: “We have been supporting this campaign to encourage pupils to remain safe and visible when walking to school for many years now.

“This is a timely campaign now that the clocks have changed and the nights are getting darker and by offering the children these fluorescent vests and hats, we hope that they take extra care on trips and excursions.”
