J.R.S.O stands for Junior Road Safety Officer. The J.R.S.O officers are normally P6 AND P7 pupils who are elected each school year. The J.R.S.O officers are guided by a J.R.S.O co-ordinator, an adult within the school.
This year the J.R.S.O’s are Caitlin Lynas, Lauren Dempsey and Klaudia Marciniak. Their co-ordinator is Mrs McGhee. Together they help raise road safety awareness and promote road safety issues to every child at every Primary age and stage and to the wider community.
They do this by taking termly assemblies to update pupils on current road safety issues. The J.R.S.O’s also hold monthly competitions, where the children can win prizes and they encourage the pupils to interactively sign in daily to the councils travel tracker programme where they can record how they have travelled to school.
