BBEY LENS May 2017 ROSPA! Centenary safety Vol 3: Issue No. Forty seven Excellence Through Partnership




On Monday, Isla Gould in 2PB was invited to the opening of the family-friendly, Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents ( RoSPA) centenary exhibition at the Library of Birmingham. Here is her report: “I walked to the library with my Daddy. We went inside and saw Tufty the road safety squirrel. He keeps children safe. I had a photo with the man who was in charge. I did a 'hunt the hazard' puzzle and put the bits in. I looked at the old Tufty badges and posters but the best bit was that I had orange juice and a biscuit.” The exhibition features RoSPA's highlights from the last 100 years, beginning with their World War 1 road safety campaign, includes vintage posters from the 1940s-1970s, as well as details of its current activities, such as the Keeping Kids Safe campaign . It runs until 13th July. Thanks to Isla’s Mum & Isla for the story. Following our Refugee Week event - JAMATHON - last year, this year we celebrate with a SLAMATHON poetry and spoken word fundraiser on 25 June, 2-7pm at Thimblemill Library (now the UK's first Library of Sanctuary, awarded by the City of Sanctuary movement). We have collated a whole host of resources for Refugee Week and beyond that, are available for you to download and use in school. Just visit bearwoodaction.wordpress.com to access them for free. FROM JAM TO SLAM
