Year 6 spent an enjoyable and informative afternoon at Bridge Park Community Centre where they participated in a range of activities as part of the Brent Junior Citizenship event.
The pupils had the opportunity to work with a wide range of people from TfL to the London Fire Brigade learning about how to keep themselves safe.
They learnt about the dangers of smoking and alcohol and were taught how to put a person into the recovery position by St John’s Ambulance.
When working with London Fire Brigade, they learnt what to do should a fire break out in the their homes and how to prevent fires by thinking about the appliances that they use, including not charging their phones overnight and not overloading sockets.
As they will be moving onto secondary school in September, another useful session was with TfL. They were reminded about the expectations around travelling on public transport and were taught how to keep themselves safe whilst crossing roads, waiting for the bus and when using the tube. For those pupils who cycle, they also learnt about bike safety.
All in all it was an extremely enjoyable afternoon and the pupils will now be able to use the lessons learnt to keep themselves safe.
Thank you to all of the presenters for their time and enthusiasm!
