Keeping Our Kids Safe

The Garioch and North Marr Community Safety Group has provided school bag reflectors for pupils in five primary schools in their area. The reflectors help to protect children when they walk to and from school on dark mornings and afternoons. They were handed over to the schools by Provost Judy Whyte and Chairman Ron McKail.

The five primary schools were:

  • Lumsden
  • Port Elphinstone
  • Rhynie
  • Strathburn
  • Uryside

In total, 1151 reflectors were given out.

Ron McKail, Chairman of the G&NM CSG said:

"I am pleased the safety group were delivering 1151 reflectors to five primary schools and nurseries in the Inverurie and Huntly clusters.

"Attaching these reflectors to the children’s school bags, to clothing or to bicycles are ideal for helping to keep them safer by making them more visible to cars and other vehicles when they are travelling to and from school during the darker winter months ahead."

June Andrew, Transport Safety Education Officer said:

"I think it's a great idea promoting be safe be seen. The reflectors that the GNM Community Safety Group delivered to some schools will help the children in these areas to be seen whilst walking or cycling to school. Anything that promotes road safety is always a winner."
