On Tuesday 8 November, Year 12 attended the Safe Drive Stay Alive presentation at the Hexagon in Reading. It had a very powerful impact on everyone, due to the reality of the speakers, who all came in with their own stories to tell. The speakers included a fireman, a policeman, a paramedic, a doctor, someone who was involved in an accident and suffered life changing injuries and a mother of a young man who died in a road traffic accident. The speakers all really opened our eyes to the importance of wearing a seatbelt, not using your phone, not being under the influence of drink or drugs and driving within the speed limits whilst travelling in a car. The message that hit everyone the hardest was definitely the mother of the son who had died as it was so real - a few tears were shed! Overall it was an incredibly useful and insightful talk and will definitely make us think about driving carefully in the future.
