Walk to School Week

walk2schoolDon’t forget to walk to school this week, or scooter, or cycle or park and stride!!!!

Every little bit helps and may cut down on the traffic outside our school gates.

Many thanks for your support.


Our Junior Road Safety Officers (Lorna, Carrie, Abbie and Jade from P7) will be out and about in the mornings over the next 2 weeks to monitor the parking around our school. They will be using iPads and their road safety puppet friends to record information on parking at both the front and back gates. Keep an eye out for them – they might even ask you how you feel about the parking around our school! We will be using the information they collect to try and make parking around our school safer.

Also – don’t forget to enter their fantastic new competition to design a cover for our School Travel Plan.

Meet Olly

Our Junior Road Safety Officers organised a Design a Mascot competition in school for all stages to enter.

Caitlin Stewart in P6Y won the competition with this fabulous mascot Olly – The Bolly Bop Man!!!

Congratulations Caitlin!! And watch out for Olly, I am sure you will be seeing him around!


JRSO Launch

This morning 3 P7 pupils – Carrie, Jade and Lorna visited Woodburn Primary for the Junior Road Safety Launch.  They will be our officers for the 2013-2014 school year.

The girls are now well equipt with good ideas for helping to keep Lasswade pupils safe from road traffic.

Watch out for their notice board which will be full of safety tips and how the officers can help you.

There will also be lots of competitions too.

Watch this space for more information.
