PUPILS at Windwhistle Primary School have been given new high visibility jackets that they will be using on trips, and for walking to and from the school in Kingsley Road, Weston.

The school was given the jackets by the Weston branch of Specsavers for use as the mornings and evenings get darker as winter approaches.

Staff from the firm in High Street also gave pupils a talk on eyes, eye health and glasses.
