The school advocacy for SouthPoint Royal School started with knowledgeable awareness on safety tips both for the students and teachers to the audience of over 110 students and 12 teachers. World Safety Organization’s SafERR team of 5 person’s were at the school on the 6th of May, 2019 at 7:30am.
The visit focused on children safety, playground safety and safety in cars. The importance of SRS (Supplementary Restraint System) also known as Airbag were taught to the children. Additionally, the pupils were made to understand age limits for driving and sitting in a vehicle, for example, children below 12 years of age should not sit at the front seat when in a car. Other tips included reasons why they should not be playing or talking when eating during their lunch breaks to avoid choking.
Safety tips were followed with questions from the children, those from Basic 2, 3 which of course where answered. An additional extra 20mins of training with the teachers was performed after the students had all gone to their classes which based on orientation on the importance of the SafERR program and how they will benefit from it as teachers, discussions on first aid for bleeding, choking, and how to manage a casualty who is conscious.
The management thanked WSO for such an opportunity they just experienced and pledged their support for the program.
