Gwynedd Junior Road Safety Officers Awards
For many years Gwynedd Council's Road Safety Unit has invited the county's Primary Schools to nominate two pupils from the junior section of the school to be Junior Road Safety Officers.
The role of the young officers is to spread road safety messages to the school community by holding talks, competitions, placing posters as well as putting their own ideas into action to raise awareness of road safety. The children receive a certificate and medal at the end of their time as Junior Road Satety Officers in recognition of all their hard work.
This year, in award ceremonies organised by Gwynedd Council’s Road Safety Unit, a shield was awarded to the schools in Arfon, Dwyfor and Meirionnydd which, in the opinion of the Road Safety Unit, had done the best job of promoting and encouraging road safety.
This year’s award winners were Ysgol Bontnewydd for Arfon; Ysgol Bro Plenydd for Dwyfor; and Ysgol OM Edwards for Meirionnydd. Many congratulations to all the pupils who take part in the JRSO scheme.
