This is a school plan that will help 1st - 3rd grade pupils learn about road safety and understand their responsibilities as pedestrians and passengers. The goal is to develop attitudes and skills and the culture of road safety awareness leading to the desired behavior. Moreover, pupils can learn how to prevent accidents and avoid behaviors that lead to accidents.
Our school has been setting this emphasis on Road Safety Education since the school year 2010-11 in cooperation with a private organization, the CNP ASFALISTIKH, which, with the approval of the Elementary Education Director, is the sponsor of the school’s action plan for road safety for all these years.
According to The World Health Organization in the year of 2013, 186,300 pupils under eighteen die on the world’s roads almost every year and road accidents are amongst the top five causes of death for kids over five and the primary cause between the 15 – 17 year olds. Car passengers and pedestrians report roughly three quarters of road deaths amid the youngsters, while girls are twice less likely to die on the roads in comparison with the boys.
A lovely fairytale that teaches kids the importance of road safety from a very young age.
The booklet/fairytale was published by the Road Safety Initiative Group of Cyprus and the author is a primary school teacher that specializes on these issues. Louis Group was the main sponsor and the other sponsors were: Alpha Bank, the Ministry of Communication & Works and Lanitis Bros (Coca Cola).
