Last week community policing officer Constable Jeremy Jones visited the Year 4 and Year 4/5 classes at Margaret River Primary School to speak to students about road rules, safe bike riding and maintaining roadworthy bicycles. The visits were arranged as part of the students’ first term inquiry into bicycles and road safety.
Constable Jones listened to and provided answers and solutions to many students’ questions. He stressed to his audience the importance of above all else, riders wearing a properly fitted helmet and making themselves clearly visible to drivers of vehicles in a safe, sensible fashion.
Constable Jones who is a new arrival in Margaret River enjoyed his visit to the classes and said he looked forward to returning to the school for a mass bicycle and helmet safety check day in the near future, before the students’ Wharncliffe Mill bicycle camp.
