Our JRSOs were encouraged to work collaboratively with pupils from other schools to share ideas. Dayna and Mia worked with pupils from Breakspear School in the balloon workshop to create a bicycle and it was so good they won a prize! Akash and Kiana worked with pupils from William Byrd School to construct a large scale pedestrian bridge; they were awarded a prize too! Charlotte and Arjun were excellent team leaders in the drama and games workshop where they learnt new games to play with younger pupils to promote the messages of road safety.
In the afternoon our team of JRSOs took part in an interactive school team road safety quiz for all the twenty schools taking part. The results were displayed on the Beck Theatre stage after each question so that we could see our team's progress as they moved ahead of Northwood College, Breakspear, Botwell House, Oak Farm and St Bernadette's. When the final question came our team was in second place. The team consulted, decided what they thought was the right answer and pushed the button to enter it. After a few tense seconds we discovered that St. Helen's College had won the road safety quiz! Our team members were awarded book tokens from the Deputy Mayor who congratulated them on their road safety knowledge. Our JRSOs returned to school with lots of prizes and ideas for their year in office and we look forward to seeing the initiatives they lead in the coming months.
