Another great day today at the Bexley Junior Citizen event, and the end of our first week. It's been busy, with lots of fun and laughter, but most importantly, all the pupils have learned some valuable life skills to help them stay safe in the future. For our morning session, we welcomed the lovely Year 6 pupils from Days Lane Primary school. We're looking forward to another busy week, welcoming and working with more pupils.

Oldham Crucial Crew Event 2017


October saw the Oldham Crucial Crew event to help youngsters stay safe. Over a 15-day period, young people from across Oldham were given important safety advice.

The ‘Crucial Crew’ event, coordinated by Child Safety Media in partnership with Oldham Council, took place at the Mahdlo Youth Zone from the 12th - 30th June. Over 2,000 primary school pupils took part in a whole range of fun activities, but with serious messages, from a variety of participating organisations such as Greater Manchester Police, TravelSafe Partnership, Unity Partnership Road Safety Team, OASIS (Oldham Alcohol & Substance Intervention Service), Mahdlo and Oldham Council’s Children and Safeguarding team and Joint Communities Service.

Pupils were presented with a number of dangerous or challenging situations and took part in role-play exercises to learn how to deal with them. The ‘hands-on’ safety event taught young people about important issues that are often overlooked by the curriculum, such as personal safety, anti-social behaviour, commuter safety, road safety, drug and alcohol awareness, difference, healthy relationships and E-learning.

This gave them the unique opportunity to learn valuable skills from the professionals, through practical demonstrations and discussions in real-life situations - all within a safe environment.

There was a VIP Day on Wednesday, 28th June, when Oldham's Mayor and Mayoress Councillor Shadab Qumer and Mrs. Sobia Arshi attended to see the workshops and show support for the important work of the programme.

Our Junior Citizen Event in Islington, North London, was a huge success once again this year. We had a huge number of entries for our picture competition which gives pupils an opportunity to show us what key messages they learnt at the event.

We're pleased to announce that the worthy winner this year was Maysaa, from Hanover Primary School. Maysaa's entry highlighted what she learnt about mobile phone safety. She wrote -

"I know not to use my phone in public as someone could rob me. And now, if someone wants my phone, give it to them as they might be carrying a weapon"

The mobile phone scenario highlighted the risks of using a mobile phone in public as it poses a potential risk of theft - something that is becoming very noticeable with the increase in moped gangs who steal phones from pedestrians. Pupils also learnt that it's safer to give up the phone rather than try to challenge or chase the thief as there is also that they could become a victim of violence.

Here is Maysaa receiving her prize from Rosa, one of the Police Officers who ran the scenario.

The winner of the June 2017 Elmbridge Junior Citizen event Picture Competition was Leticia dos Santos, who is now a new Year 7 pupil at Esher C of E High School (but attended Hurst Park Primary School as a Year 6 pupil.

Elmbridge Junior Citizen is a multi-agency child safety event that runs in June each year at the Walton Fire Station, with a number of agencies participating such as Elmbridge Borough Council, Surrey Police, Surrey Fire and Rescue Service, the Royal National Lifeboat Institute, St John Ambulance, British Transport Police and Abellio.


The picture competition is a fantastic opportunity for pupils to give us a visual interpretation of their visit to the event and reflect on what they enjoyed about it, and most importantly, the lessons they learnt.
 
Leticia was presented with £50 worth of ‘New Look’ vouchers, a Certificate and a laminated copy of her artwork earlier today, so many congratulations.
