Safety Day

Hundreds of learners attended a wide variety of safety presentations and workshops

Hundreds of learners attended a wide variety of safety presentations and workshops.

At the end of last year, Doncaster College Student’s Union held a ‘Police Personal Safety Day’ as part of the Stay Safe week. It was an enormous success with over 600 learners attending presentations.

 

The aim of the day was to highlight the importance of staying safe in the community and to enable learners to see how the police, with the tools and resources at their disposal, try to make that happen. The intention was also to challenge the opinion of learners and show how some of their actions may not keep them safe, and how some of these actions can affect others, and then to encourage them to make the right choices.

 

The day comprised of a range of activities including a police sniffer dog demonstration, which was very popular and informative, and a ‘Gun’s and Knives take Lives’ talk and presentation in the drama hall, which was particularly graphic, thought provoking and hard hitting.

 

Other activities included the South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue ‘Subaru’ driving simulator, a fire engine demonstration, knife arch demonstration and an opportunity for learners to have their postcodes and details etched onto their bikes.
