Prep Excursion to Kew Traffic School

The Prep Boys enjoyed an excursion to the Kew Traffic School on Thursday 1 June to complement their Integrated Studies topic of Transport. The session involved Road Safety Education information and videos, followed by some hands-on practical bike riding around a series of little roads. The boys had to learn to keep to the left and obey the traffic lights. Our thanks to the parents who were able to join us, and to Mr Kenny for driving the bus. Here are the boys’ reflections on the morning:
