The event held at Blackwood RFC was organised by Bollo Ltd and Caerphilly’s Road Safety Team who delivered important life skills in a fun and engaging way alongside other organisations.
For the organisations that take part this is the only project that captures almost every year 6 pupil in the Caerphilly county borough and is a very effective way of raising the awareness of road safety such as use of seatbelts and the dangers associated with poor hygiene, cyber bullying, water and electricity among others. As a result, pupils are more confident and are in a better position to make safer choices when confronted with these dangers.
Cllr Barbara Jones, Cabinet Member for Education and Achievement said, “Crucial Crew is a fantastic event that delivers relevant, important and effective messages to a large number of pupils in a short period of time. Thank you to all involved, I am pleased that Crucial Crew has been as successful this year as it has in previous years.”
