PUPILS have received road safety kits for producing animation videos.

The 30 youngsters at Windwhistle Primary School in Weston sent in the first entries to the competition organised by the RAC.

They were given kit bags to keep them safe and visible while walking to and from school.

The kit includes a high-visibility vest with the mascot Horace on them, spoke reflectors for bicycles and fluorescent shoelaces.

Headteacher Lyn Hunt said: “The children had a great time researching, storyboarding and filming their road safety animation and it was also a valuable lesson to teach them some key road safety messages.

“So we were really excited when we heard the children would each receive a road safety kit from Horace and I am sure they will be invaluable in the winter months and whenever the children are walking and playing in the neighbourhood.”

The campaign is designed to help children understand road safety.
