P4 LJ @ Road Safety Park

On 2 Nov 2015, the P4 pupils went out on a learning journey to Road Safety Community Park (RSCP) at East Coast Park.  It was a learning journey that many of the girls were looking forward to.  The girls were divided into three groups and played different roles as pedestrians, cyclists or Go-Kart drivers.  They were briefed by the Traffic Police in the Auditorium on some of the safety rules to obey while in the RSCP.  The girls were then each given a piece of paper on the route they had to take and the checkpoints they had to visit when the game began.  Each girl had to visit at least 5 checkpoints and answer some road safety questions at the checkpoints.  After knowing what they had to do, the girls were ready to set off.

We had many parent volunteers who had arrived early at the park to be Road Marshalls. Their roles were to ensure the safety of the girls within the park, check that the girls answered the questions at the checkpoints correctly and give demerit points to any girl who failed to observe any road safety rules. The cyclist and Go-Kart drivers also had to go through a test to see how well they could manoeuvre their vehicles.

After completing their tasks, the girls started to stream back to the Auditorium. They had a snack break before they were shown an entertaining video to reinforce some road safety rules. They were also given some useful brochures to summarise what they had learnt at the park. Overall, it was an enjoyable and educational trip for the girls. May they apply what they have learnt from the RSCP in their everyday lives!
