Young people at a Carrickfergus school have come up with a bright idea for driving home the road safety message.

Woodlawn Primary School Council organised Fun Florescent Friday and asked staff and pupils to dress as brightly as they could to promote the ‘Be safe, be seen!’ initiative.

Pupils were encouraged to dress in  bright colours to promote the 'Be safe, be seen' message on Fun Florescent Friday. INCT 06-754-CON

In addition to this, Woodlawn PS had a visit from ZooLab which brought a variety of live animals into the classrooms for the morning, including snakes, tarantulas, rats and huge snails.

The children got to handle the animals and ask lots of questions about them.
