Safe Drive Stay Alive

On the 8th February the Sixth Form attended the Safe Drive Stay Alive presentation at Jo Richardson School. Without exposing students to extreme detail; the young people received a powerful and emotive message about the reality of how tragedy can strike as a result of a car crash. This was a profoundly moving presentation and one that we feel was beneficial to all of our students.

Shockingly last year 1,204 people aged 16-19 were injured on roads in the Thames Valley and an average of 4 young people per week were killed or seriously injured. The Safe Drive Stay Alive campaign aimed to reach new and pre-drivers in an emotive and hard-hitting way, influencing behavior and attitude on the roads.

A member of each emergency service and a victim attended the event, hosted by a DJ who spoke to the young audience about the tragedies they had encountered personally and professionally. Throughout the whole event our students behaved impeccable and were commended by all the presenters as Warren was the only school that took the time to thank each presenter as they left at the end.
