Junior Citizens Event
2 July 2019
On Tuesday 2nd 2019 our school has been invited to take part in the Junior Citizens Scheme Event at Workington Fire Station. This event is for children in year 6.
The Constabulary’s Children & Young Persons Officers, assisted by PCSOs, joined partner agencies at Junior Citizen Events across the county this month.
This is the first year that the Junior Citizen Scheme is being rolled out across Cumbria after award-winning success in the south of the county.
Our Year 6 children visited our local fire station and received inputs from different partner agencies regarding serious issues such as personal safety, crime, alcohol-use, drug-use and first aid training.
These inputs were aimed to educate and enable children to deal with situations they may encounter in the future. The inputs consisted of a variety of practical scenarios, videos and workshops, designed to encourage them to think through the issues and resolve them successfully.
