Week 10 - Road Safety

This week we have been learning with Constable Rob, our community constable about keeping ourselves safe on our roads.

On Monday we had a refresher on road patrol and the calls we use. Constable Rob was very impressed with how well the juniors at Hay Park know what happens on road patrol. He said it means we are awesome role models!

Today we went for a walk around our local community to identify hazzards. There are lots of different hazzards such as:

  • cones
  • trees that are hanging low
  • fire hydrants (the yellow squares on the ground)
  • cards
  • uneven concrete
  • people (sometimes we distract each other!)
  • the kerb
Here are a few photos from today.

Can you spot the hazzards in this photo?

  1. Hi Scott Class Learners!
    It’s Zoe from Paihia School.
    While I was reading your blog I saw your post that you guys had Constable Rob at your school! And guess what!? He comes to our school too! We haven’t had him just yet but we have learnt quite a lot over the past few years. Did you guys find the courses hard? I’ve found biking through obstacles quite easy now now because I’ve been biking for 7 years now. Please keep up the good work. Can’t wait to see more posts on your blog.

    From, Zoe

  2. Hello I like how your blog is presented but could you work on some of the pictures because I can’t see some of the pictures?By Amie.

  3. Hi Amie,

    Thank you for your comment. It was great to work with you this morning. Thank you for the feedback. I will try and fix the photos on my blog.
    Do you do road patrol at your school?

  4. Hello my name is Saffyre, Paihia School. I think that road safety is very important and everyone should learn to be safe on the road with a bike. Constable Rob came to our school last term. We have a pump track at our school it opened about last term. Did you do your road patrol on the road or at your school?

    Kind regards,
