A visit to the Road Safety Centre in Thebarton for junior primary school students at Two Wells Primary School has been made possible following a donation by the Two Wells Blue Light group.
The group’s $320 donation has meant the school can hire a bus to take the almost 120 Reception to Year 2 students to the centre, where they will have the opportunity to learn about road safety, ride bikes and interact positively with police members.
TWPS principal, Lynda Fitzpatrick-Brown, said the donation was opening up new learning opportunities for the students.
“It’s very generous and greatly appreciated,” Mrs Fitzpatrick-Brown said. “It will allow the children to explore bike safety in a secure environment and get expert advice from friendly police officers.
“It’s a positive interaction with police personnel and will hopefully give the students a better understanding of their role.
“It’s also an opportunity we wouldn’t normally be able to participate in.”
The students will visit the centre on November 20.
