Pupils at Ysgol Gwaun Gynfi , Deiniolen recently had a special visit from the most famous cat in Gwynedd, Careful Carys .

Careful Carys , Gwynedd Council’s  character promoting road safety throughout the county was at the school to thank  Mrs Jackie Warrington’s Year 1 pupils for working hard in sharing the important message of keeping safe by the road side to all pupils at the school  .

Year 1 pupils held an assembly for all pupils at the school to raise awareness about road safety based on their very own recent experiences  in taking part in the Kerbcraft scheme  with Mai Jones the schemes Co-ordinator .   The children have benefited substantially from Kerbcraft through taking part in regular practical training  on how to cross the roads safely .

As part of the scheme pupils were taught the green cross code  and decided to pass on this information to the rest of the schools pupils .

Councillor Gareth Roberts , the Council’s Cabinet Member for the Environment said
 “ More vehicles than ever are on our roads, ensuring that all road users are safe is a  priority for the Council “.

“ I am glad that we have established Kerbcraft in Ysgol Gwaun Gynfi , Deiniolen to help the children be aware of the dangers that are on our roads “ .
