On February 3rd 2016 before winter holidays, first grade students had a chance to meet a policeman from The Police Traffic Department in Slupsk. Children already knew a great deal about his duties. Together they established that pedestrians on the road can move only along the sidewalk or if there isn't any, on the left side of the road. Moreover, crossing the road is acceptable in assigned spots such as zebra crossing or traffic lights. Pedestrians should always make sure that there isn't any vehicle coming.
The photo contest announced in our school had an objective to perform how to ride a bike safely. The photos, delivered to us, depicted children riding bikes and wearing reflective elements, helmets or other protectors. It was also performed to move on the road in a safe way. Having used all the delivered photos, the organizers have created a photo exhibition in order to both introduce the results and to show an example how to cycle safely.

The project is being carried out from 1st September 2015 to 30th May 2016 and it has been partially funded by the Road Safety Partnership whose role is to work for the improvement of road safety and decreasing the number of road crash victims in Poland.

For a few years the School Safety Club has organized a competition called “Win Your Life”. It is held every month and it concerns the promotion of road safety. Each month the subject matter of the competition varies. The last one was to write a rhyme or a poem that could encourage children to use car safety seats until they are 150 cm tall. The prize for the best rhyme or poem was a cycle helmet.
Each school year begins with special meetings organized for children where policemen come. There pupils improve their knowledge of how to stay safe on the way to school. They also practise their abilities going on short trips to the nearest crossing with their form masters. Furthermore, our school takes part in many competitions organized by the Police and WORD (Voivodeship Training Centre For Drivers) as well as holds several events concerning road safety, in which we engage as many pupils as possible. All that gives children a chance to compete in various means of expression.
Lublin is a city with a high traffic. Our kindergarten is situated in the city center, near very busy streets and intersections. We want to prepare our preschoolers to move safely in traffic. We want to equip pupils with the skills and knowledge of the consequences of their own actions, sensitize on the need to care for their own safety and the ability to cope with difficult situations.
On 7th December 2015 there was a lesson about reflectors for the students from our school. On that day the children brought many different things with reflectors as well as reflective vest. They were amazed how the things shone in the fleshes of cameras.
During the school year we organize many meetings to make our students realize what kind of dangers they can meet on their way to school and back home. We believe that thanks to such meetings our students will be more safe and their knowledge of how to call for help and first aid abilities will not have to be checked in real situations. This school year there were several meetings with police officers. On 29th September two female police officers visited our school.
