Pupils help builder’s road safety awareness crusade

 

A HOUSEBUILDER enlisted primary school pupils to spread a road safety message in a growing community.

Barratt Homes invited Waverley Junior Academy to raise awareness around its nearby development, called Momentum.

Three winners were chosen from the Year 9 group and their posters will be displayed close to the estate’s entrance.

Barratt sales manager Gemma Rosindale said: “The students all did a brilliant job of highlighting the importance of road safety around Waverley on their posters.

“We hope the children’s signs will make drivers in the area consider their speed and help keep our children safe from speeding cars.”

The winners were Serene Sae-Ko (9), Saranya Basu (9) and Ethan Liversidge (8).

Teacher Katie Walton added: “The children really enjoyed designing their road safety signs for Barratt.

“The activity encouraged them to be aware of speeding drivers and to take care when crossing the road.”
