At Central Kids Huntly West, we were very lucky to have a visit from Garry and Ruben the Road Safety Bear.
They talked to the children about the importance of wearing bright clothes to be seen when out walking or riding your bike. Garry also talked about how important it was to wear a bike helmet and seat belt and to make the ‘click’. Great messages to help keep our tamariki safe.
Some of the children were then chosen to help act out how to safely cross the road, some children held the different lights and others held Ruben’s hand as they safely crossed the pedestrian crossing.
It is great for us to have the opportunity to develop our relationship with our local council and bring these experiences to our tamariki.
