The JRSO scheme is in its third year and we now have JRSOs in 137 schools.
This year, we had nearly 200 JRSOs attend the two training days at Hampshire Court Hotel, Basingstoke and Botley Park Hotel, Boorley Green.
The children and teaching staff spent the day taking part in four interactive workshops, which taught them all about road safety. The workshops consisted of the previously successful Heart FM and t-shirt designing but also included an interactive Qwizdom activity and one which suggested activities which could be pplannedin school.
This year's events were again supported by Hampshire Fire and Rescue who, as well as helping out in the workshops, introduced a fantastic new event for JRSO Champions! Read more information on this on the JRSO Champions section of the website!
Finally, we need to say a huge thank you to St. John's Primary School in Basingstoke and Fair Oak Junior School in Eastleigh for supporting the events by presenting their JRSO experiences from last year. They all did a fantastic job and everyone found their contributions very helpful. Thanks girls!
The Road Safety Team are working with Hampshire Fire and Rescue on a brand new event for 2012!
In order to thank you for your hard work, we are going to give you the opportunity to compete in our Champions of Champions event.
All you need to do is to keep as much evidence of your work as possible in your blue folder. This could include competition entries, photos, newspaper cuttings, storyboards...anything showing what road safety work your school have been doing!
The deadline for us receiving your evidence folder is Friday 30th March 2012. We will then choose two schools from North Hampshire and two schools from South Hampshire to be invited to the JRSO Champions of Champions event held at Winchester Fire Station on Wednesday 27th June. Our schools will compete against each other and schools from Southampton and Portsmouth to be crowned the JRSO Champion of Champions! You will be awarded with a trophy and prizes for you and your adult helper.
