Welcome to Junior Road Safety Officers 2017 – 2018!
The JRSOs are a group of four Primary 7 children who meet regularly to discuss and plan for safety when travelling to school and around the local area. Mrs Black supervises and leads the JRSO group.
At the start of the year we attended a conference where all JRSOs in Midlothian went to meet each other.
So far this year, in our school, we have run a competition for Walk to School Week 2017. Each class had to record how many children walked, cycled or scooted to school. The winning class will receive an extra Goldentime! Check back soon for the result!
What Happened Last Year?
At the start of the year 2016 we attended a conference where all JRSOs in Midlothian went to meet each other.
We ran two competitions. We had had lots of entries for a walk to school poster and a walk to school chart.
We are pleased to announce that in the Midlothian Walk to School Chart competition which was judged by Midlothian’s School Travel Plan Co-ordinator we came second!
We had two winners for our walk to school week posters. Congratulations! All the other entries were displayed around our school over walk to school week.
As part of Health Week 2016 – 2017 the JRSOs are encouraged everyone to take part in National Walk to School Week. The JRSOs decided to have a daily walking theme:
- Monday: Walk to school wearing a hat
- Tuesday: Happy SHOESDAY! Walk to school wearing your favourite shoes.
- Wednesday: Walk to school with crazy hair.
- Thursday: Walk to school wearing odd socks.
- Friday: Walk to school wearing sunglasses.
Each class kept a wall chart record to see how many of the pupils at Bonnyrigg walk to school during Walk to School Week.
The JRSOs also participated in the annual Inter-School walk as part of health week and Walk to School Week.
3rd – 7th October 2016:
We organised the Autumn Walk to School Week
We took part in the Hands Up Survey Scotland.
