Last week, the students of The Cheshire School visited the Kew Traffic School; spending the day exploring winding roads and busy shopping districts. The students navigated the terrain, whilst learning about road safety and being considerate of other ‘drivers’.
The aim of the Traffic School is to prepare young children for driving and cycling road rules, removed from the dangers of the roads themselves. Exploring the miniaturised world around them, The Cheshire School students went whizzing past cinemas, convenience stores and restaurants.
Complete with working traffic lights, storefronts and lane markings, students were faced with the obstacles that face their adult counterparts on the Victorian roads. From slow ‘drivers’ to waiting for the lights to change before driving, the children were perfect examples of how to behave on the roads… their manners would put many adult drivers to shame!
