Setswakgosing and Potchefstroom Secondary Schools Clinch Victory at the 2019 Provincial Road Safety Models Winners and will represent NW at National

Eight schools from four Districts took part in the competition for the best Road Safety Model. This occurred at recent Provincial Road Safety Participatory Education Techniques project that was held on the 02nd August 2019 at Matlosana, Protea Hotel, in Dr Kenneth Kaunda District.

The competition was too stiff as all the schools tightened their belts. The Departmental applauded the winner of the competition, Setswakgosing Secondary School from Morokweng, Dr. RSM District and Potchefstroom Secondary School from Dr. KK District who followed on the 2nd position and Mafikeng Secondary School from Ngaka- Modiri Molema came on 3rd position.

The project is a flagship programme which aims at changing learner’s attitude towards road safety. This is to encourage learners to be aware of road safety challenges in their community as well as to enhance learners’ presentation skills by ways of presentation sessions.

Participating schools were provided with material resources to build models that they used as a new initiative for road safety. Learners were adjudicated on these model displays as well as oral presentations illustrating their proposed solutions to community road safety problems.

The objectives of the competition are amongst others to: • Encourage learners to participate in addressing road safety matters. • Teach learners to take responsibility of road safety issues that affect their communities. • Empower learners, facilitators and community members with practical research skills. • Develop and enhance the learners’ presentation, communication and listening skills by means of practical presentation sessions. • Change learners’ attitudes towards road safety issues by means of participatory education.

The overall winner received a voucher valued at R10 000, 2nd price R6 000, 3rd price R4 000 and consolation price of R2 000 to each school that participated coupled with gift packs.

Setswakgosing Secondary School will proceed to represent the Province on the rural category and Potchefstroom on Urban category at the National competition that will be hosted by Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) in September 2019, in Bloemfontein – Free State.
