Visit to the Road Safety Park and the Police Dogs Unit, Nicosia.

 

On the 31st January 2017 the Junior 2 classes visited the Road Safety Park in Nicosia. The visit was organised alongside a safety topic covered in Greek lessons (for natives) and ‘The Hodgeheg’ read in Book Study (for non-natives). The Road Safety Park is located near the Police Headquarters and is a simulation of an urban road network.  

 

Here the children received relevant training and information about road safety from specially trained police personnel. The children also acquired practical skills as pedestrians and cyclists through the use of small cars with pedals, or bicycles. The purpose of the visit was to improve the children’s knowledge, understanding and skills on issues of road safety. 

 

To extend their learning, J2 also visited the Police Dogs Unit, part of the Cyprus Police Crime Combating Department, near the Road Safety Park. Here they found out about the variety of breeds trained to be sniffer dogs and the role of both the dogs and their trainers. They were lucky enough to be allowed to meet two Police dogs and to watch two training exercises!
