Junior Road Safety Officer Calendar Competition

Congratulations to Glasgow school pupil Rahma Islam who received an early Christmas present after winning this year's Junior Road Safety Officer (JRSO) Calendar Competition.

The JRSO scheme is co-ordinated by the council's Road Safety Unit which support schools in promoting road safety. 

The scheme is a great way for P6 and P7 pupils to get involved in raising awareness of road safety in their school.  Every primary school has two JRSO who help the Road Safety team promote and deliver road safety messages throughout the year.

One of the JRSO tasks is to run an annual competition to design a road safety calendar which is displayed in every nursery, primary and secondary school in Glasgow.

There were three themes to choose from: Cycle Safety, Safer Crossing Places and The Green Cross Code.

The winning poster, themed on the green cross code, was designed by Knightswood Primary pupil Rahma Islam.

Local councillor and Chair of the Sustainability and the Environment Policy Development committee, Paul Carey, presented Rahma with a new bicycle, helmet and hi viz jacket at Knightswood Primary on Monday 12 December.

Councillor Paul Carey said: "We received some 5000 entries this year and choosing the winner was a very difficult task.

"Road safety at school is one of the council's top priorities and our annual calendar competition helps children focus on what is a very important subject and at the same time raises their awareness of staying safe.

"The JRSO do a great job promoting road safety throughout the year. The completion helps to get a serious message across in a fun way, that youngsters will remember, to keep them safe."

The JRSOs in Knightswood Primary School, James McDonald and Reese O'Donnell, both in P6b, also received gift vouchers for organising and running the competition in their school.
