PCC Ron Hogg with pupils from St. Andrew's Primary School
Ron Hogg commends local safety carousels
Year 6 pupils from County Durham and Darlington joined Durham Constabulary and many more partner agencies in the annual safety carousel this month.
Pupils had the opportunity to learn how to stay safe in 6 fun interactive workshops, which included home fire safety, arson awareness, electricity safety, water safety, first aid and cyberbullying. Durham Constabulary delivered an interactive session on cyberbullying to teach children how to keep safe online, where to go for help and to ensure the cyber world is fun but safe place for them to visit.
Ron Hogg, Durham Police and Crime Commissioner, joined the safety carousel to experience the different safety messages children in his community are receiving.
Mr Hogg said: “I attended the safety carousel myself to see first-hand some of the sessions delivered by partners. The whole day was about educating our children to be safer in many different situations. The cyber bullying session was particularly important and was well received by all the children who now have a clearer idea of what cyber bullying is all about. I’d like to give my congratulations to all those delivering the sessions. This is a fantastic example of partners working together and helping to make our children safer.”
