Slow Down for Bobby , by Miss Gough-Hughes
Date: 27th Sep 2017 @ 2:13pm
Slow Down for Bobby!
Today St George's Primary School have been fortunate enough to get a visit from the Liverpool based writer and storyteller, Jude Lennon. Jude Lennon informed children of the importance of road safety and told the sad yet inspiring story of a young boy named Bobby. Jude read the children a story called SuperBob which the children loved taking part in, doing actions to represent the importance of slowing down and sticking to the 20MPH speed limit near schools. The children have been set a special job, telling all of their friends and family about always slowing down for the 20MPH speed limit and how children can keep themselves safe when walking near the road. Jude taught the children the following sayings: 'I'm thinking about how to be safe on the roads' and 'slow down, everyone'. The children thouroughly enjoyed Jude's visit and have learnt some valuable lessons regarding road safety. A huge thank you to Jude Lennon and The Bobby Colleran Trust for teaching such a valuable lesson.
Mini Police launch, by Mrs Walters
Date: 27th Sep 2017 @ 4:02pm
Our newly elected Mini Police from years 5 and 6 had the pleasure of attending the launch event at the Emergency Services Training Centre in Birkenhead along with five other schools.
The children met the High Sheriff and the Assistant Chief Constable Julie Cooke along with other senior members of the police.
The children were lucky to see the National Police Air Service arrive in a helicopter and were able to see the police dog section and mounted police with their horses Boris and Harriet.
They also had a talk from the armed response team and were able to sit in their vehicles and all the children sat on a police motorbike.
This is the start of their journey as Mini Police and they will be attending more events in the future.

We were delightd to start our Mini Police initiative at St George's today. Sergeant Burke and his colleague Jill from Merseyside Police held a special assembly to launch our campaign.
20 children in years 5 and 6 have been invited to apply for a place in our mini police squad who will work with Merseyside police to promote excellent behaviour and an understanding of how the police make our community safe. The mini police squad will lead assemblies, help with community projects and even take part in school trips to experience how the police work.
Mrs Skarratts-Jackson has asked the children interested in joining the mini police to complete an application form.
We look forward to revealing our first cadets in October.
