PUPILS got to grips with bike safety as a Blackpool high school staged a special week of events to say a big welcome to its new Year Seven youngsters.
The annual freshers’ week at St George’s High School, in Marton, saw the new students turn their classroom into a road as they learnt the rights and wrongs of pedalling on the streets and how to check their bikes are in tip-top condition.
Deputy headteacher Chris Ibbotson said: “The road safety team are very smart at how they put over their messages, they are interactive sessions which are re-enforced by the school, through the year.
“We have improved the main entrances for pedestrians and vehicles this year, the bicycle storage has also been made more secure.”
Pupil Jo Phillips added: “The cycle talk was really interesting I enjoyed it, we answered questions via voting pods and get instant scores on an electronic board.”
