Deaf children taught road safety

2016-02-25 06:00

The department of transport and public works ran a road safety awareness event at the Noluthando School for the Deaf in Khayelitsha last week.

Sign language interpreters helped pupils to understand what was being said as kids learned basic road safety awareness.

Principal Thandeka Mavuka said pupils come across road safety risks every day as they walk to school. “The pupils are looking forward to use the road safety colouring books they received from the department.”

“Road safety education for kids requires involvement of parents, teachers and other adults. We can set a good example by sticking to the rules of the road,” said department spokesman Byron La Hoe.
