The Translink Safety Bus visited St. Joseph’s today. The Safety Officers educated pupils on the many safety features on the buses, including the importance of wearing seatbelts and the reason for on board CCTV. They used a range of videos and education packs to bring issues such as anti-social behaviour and vandalism and their effects to life.
They also addressed general bus etiquette including signalling for the driver to stop, letting people get off the bus first, respecting other passengers, putting tickets in the bin, not putting bags on seats, moving up the bus to create space at the front and where to stand in preparation for disembarking.
Our Year 7 pupils enjoyed the interactive and interesting way that the Safety Bus team demonstrated safe use of buses, the safety features on board and how best to represent your school when getting a public bus.
