AS part of the Being Seen Being Safe project, Mandurah Primary School students will be on a float at the Mandurah Christmas Pageant on Tuesday, December 8.

The students will promote the project in conjunction with Mandurah Roadwise, Mandurah Forum, WA Police, DFES and SDERA.

The Being Seen, Being Safe campaign encourages children to be as visible as possible to drivers to reduce their risk of being hit by vehicles.

Mandurah Primary students will be riding, scooting and walking in their hi-vis vests promoting the very important message of road safety in the community.

Associate principal Benjamin Garrett said the project was one of Mandurah Primary School’s most significant and important partnerships in the local community.

“Students are vulnerable road users when they walk and cycle to and from school because they have little protection from cars in the event of crashes,” he said.
