Year 12 - Safe Drive, Stay Alive

On the 16 November students from Year 12 went to a presentation on road safety called Safe Drive Stay Alive at the Hexagon, Reading. Safe Drive Stay Alive involves a series of talks from emergency workers: a policewoman, a paramedic, an A&E doctor as well as others who had been in car crashes or lost loved ones in accidents. This, along with a short film detailing events running up to a crash drove home just how important being safe on the road is for both drivers and passengers. We even heard from someone in his twenties who now has prosthetic legs as a result of an accident. We left with a thorough understanding of all of the devastating effects of unsafe driving.

I have no doubt that the students will be safer drivers and more vigilant passengers as a result.
