Road safety magician visits Newport schools
Primary schools pupils across Newport have been learning about the importance of staying safe on the road thanks to visits from road safety magician and entertainer, Louis Taylor.
Armed with magic tricks and his puppets, Mr Rocco and Billy Beacon, Louis visited 11 primary schools in Newport to spread the vital road safety messages of; stop, look and listen; be safe be seen; and always wear a seatbelt.
The shows have been developed to communicate the basic messages of holding a grown-up’s hand (for younger children), and to stop look and listen when at the kerb (for the older children).
John Jackson, road safety officer with Capita Symonds, said: “The Louis Taylor road safety shows are great fun for children of all ages, yet they deliver very important life skill messages that the children remember and talk about for a long time.”
