Safety messages for 10-11 year-olds


MORE than 600 children and their teachers took part in special workshops based around online safety, first aid and road safety at Warrington.
The workshops were spread over a two week period at the University of Chester’s Warrington campus.
Aimed at children aged 10-11, the initiative was called “Crucial Crew.”
The event, which was organised by Child Safety Media, taught children about personal safety both online and in real life. Interactive workshops gave the youngsters advice on how to deal with dangerous situations.
Workshops were presented by nursing students from the University, along with Catch 22; Cheshire Constabulary; Bridgewater Community Healthcare; Stagecoach; Torus Housing and Warrington Council Road Safety. The children were given invaluable lessons on personal safety; first aid; healthy living; commuter and road safety and anti-social behaviour.
Child safety media director Patrick O’Malley said: “The Warrington event was the first multi-agency child safety programme to happen in the area for a number of years, providing important health and safety education for over 600 children. The programme aims to deliver memorable, practical and impactful safety memories for children, enabling them to make informed choices when they are faced with danger and embrace health and wellbeing. Thanks must go to Professor Annette McIntosh-Scott and her team, who provided a fabulous and safe venue for the programme.”
Professor McIntosh-Scott, Pro-Vice-Chancellor and Provost of the Warrington Campus, said: “We were delighted to support this excellent initiative at the Warrington Campus and our students and staff very much enjoyed contributing to the workshops.”
