Belfairs High School pupils learn to cycle safely
2:20pm Thursday 6th November 2008 in Belfairs High School
PUPILS at Belfairs School in Leigh took part in cycle training as part of a new road safety initiative.
Youngsters joined the Bikeability scheme with the assistance of Sara Hadden and other road safety advisers from Southend Council.
PE teacher Anthony Bees said: “The training aims to ensure every pupil at Belfairs who cycles to school, does so in a safe and responsible manner.
“Those who attend every session will receive high-visability gear, a lock, and helmet in recognition of having completed the course.”
