“Be safe, be seen.” That was the message from David Wilson Homes as it visited schoolchildren in St Mellon’s to kit them out with reflective gear to keep them safe on their walks home from school.
Site manager Darren Payne took time out from working on the housebuilder’s nearby Parc Tyn Y Gollen development to talk to pupils at Oakfield Primary School about how important it is to be seen when walking home from school in the dark and deliver them more than 100 reflective ‘snap bands’.
Darren said: “Working in construction we know first-hand how important it is to be visible and it’s just the same for children walking home from school in the dark winter months. It was rewarding to meet with the pupils at Oakfield Primary School and remind them of how to stay safe. I hope they enjoy wearing their snap bands, which will ensure they can be seen by passing cars as they walk home from school this winter.”
Head teacher David Harris said: “We are very grateful to Darren and David Wilson Homes for their kind donation. Keeping our pupils safe both inside and outside of school is incredibly important to us and these snap bands will help us do just that.”
