Pupils from Argyll and Bute’s Cardross Primary School had a ‘magical’ start to their week when they had a visit from Allan’s Road Safety Magic Show.
The innovative show uses magic tricks to highlight key road safety themes including safe places to cross, the importance of wearing bright clothing and keeping away from parked cars.
The children, from P1-4, were all delighted to take part in a road safety ‘hokey cokey’ – the noisy chorus of ‘stop, look and listen’ helps reinforce the safety actions to take before you cross the road.
The shows were organised by Argyll and Bute’s Road Safety Unit, for 10 schools across the area this week, with the aim of improving road safety in a fun and imaginative way.
Elspeth Davis, Head Teacher at Cardross, commented “Allan’s Road Safety Magic Show was just that, magic! The pupils were captivated as he used magic to reinforce the vital messages of Road Safety. This magic show brought a new, fun meaning to such an important area of learning – and was presented in such an engaging way our pupils will not forget it!”
