HALLS Head Central has continued the Being Seen, Being Safe road safety campaign among local schools by presenting another 300 vests to students at North Mandurah Primary School.

Centre marketing manager Taryn Palermo joined Sergeant Paul Trimble from WA Police and Tania Gigg from School Drug Education and Road Aware to present the high visible vests to students at North Mandurah Primary School, the sixth school in the area to join the initiative.

Centre manager Jasmine Dehar said the centre was poud to partner with the sixth local school to further extend support of Being Seen, Being Safe.

Since the road safety campaign was introduced in 2015, more than 1000 safety vests have been presented to students from six local schools.

The Being Seen, Being Safe program has been designed to raise awareness around safe driving in school zones.

The vests, which students are encouraged to wear to and from school each day, are a reminder to drivers to slow down in school areas.

The presentation included a road safety workshop.
