Pupils at Balmedie Primary School are sure to be seen this winter.

Representatives from local housebuilder Barratt North Scotland recently visited the school to hand out more than 60 reflective snap bands to P1 pupils in an effort to promote the importance of road safety.

The children were also given a talk about the green cross code and heard about some of the benefits that walking has for them and the environment.

Head teacher Ken McGowan said: “Road safety is an integral part of the curriculum here at Balmedie School and we’d like to thank Barratt Homes for its generous donation in providing the reflective snap bands for our P1 pupils.

“The children enjoyed the informative talk and I’ve already seen a good number of the snap bands in action so it’s great that they’ve taken the road safety message on-board.”

Beverley Sprott, Barratt North Scotland sales adviser, said: “It’s really important to teach children at a young age about road safety and we were delighted to be able to play our part in giving something back to the community of Balmedie by providing the snap bands.

“With the arrival of darker mornings and nights, the snap bands are a simple method of allowing a child to remain seen and we’d encourage parents to make sure their children are wearing them throughout the winter months; it really can make a difference.”
