Room 10 had an all important scoot skills session with Delia from Auckland Transport.
The scoot skills we learnt were stop and brake,
and emergency brake which means stop immediately and brake. Delia was wearing a helmet for protection. She said that we need knee pads, elbow pads, gloves and a helmet for safe scootering.
We practiced stepping off our scooters and walking with them at pedestrian crossings after looking left and right and when it is safe.
Delia also spoke about travel wise. She said that Auckland Transport was trying to get people out of their cars and get them walking, scootering or cycling to reduce pollution and global warming. She said that we must all do our bit by walking, cycling or by using our scooters to get to school.
Scoot skills did help many of us understand that we need to be travelwise and do our bit for making the world a better place.
