Traffic Education at SIS Regensburg

Police teach students about road safety

Whether students come to school by bike, bus, or car, it is important to know the traffic rules and to stay safe. On Friday, 1 February 2019, the Regensburg Police came to SIS Regensburg to show preschool children and first graders some important tips on how to be secure on the roads.

Students and teachers were reminded to look left, right, and left again before crossing the road, and to make sure to signal when they want to walk over a zebra crossing, by putting out the right hand. This way, drivers will know that a pedestrian wants to cross the road. The police made sure that all the participants knew how important it is to use a helmet when coming to school by bike or scooter, so that everybody is safe in all occasions.

A highlight of the visit was when students were shown the contents of a police car, especially when they had the opportunity to sit inside the car and see all the equipment that helps the police do their job. The best was when the policeman turned on the siren and blue light! Students and teachers enjoyed the visit very much, and learned many new things. Thank you to the Regensburg Police for coming to remind everyone at SIS Regensburg of road safety and for everything you do to keep children and adults safe!
