Welcome to Junior Road Safety Officers!
The JRSOs are a group of four Primary 7 children who meet once every two weeks to discuss and plan for safety when travelling to school.
As part of health week the JRSOs are encouraging everyone to take part in National Walk to School Week. This time the JRSOs have 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 will be keeping a wall chart record to see how many of the pupils at Bonnyrigg walk to school during Walk to School Week.
The JRSOs will also be participating in the annual Inter-School walk as part of health week and Walk to School Week.
Whats Happened So Far?
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 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 will be displayed around our school over walk to school week.
3rd – 7th October: Autumn Walk to School Week
We have also taken part in the Hands Up Survey Scotland.
