On Tuesday as part of the Sixth Form Well Being Day Programme the students witnessed a challenging and very emotional presentation on Road safety which was hosted jointly by the emergency services. The project was part of Operation Dragoon, a Northumbria police road safety initiative.

‘Road Sense Common Sense’ was an hour live speaker and short film presentation which was very hard hitting, relevant and memorable for the students who at the age of 16-18 are more vulnerable to road death than at any other time in their life.

The presenters gave true stories of road traffic accidents and victims from all perspectives. The students and staff were very moved by the experience and it certainly made them think about their driving.
