To have a positive and productive day is possible when you start the day positively. The way to school should be comfortable with every convenience to lift the spirit and enjoy the route.
It is definitely a pleasure to welcome smiling students at school when they come ready and want to study, because they won’t face difficulties on their way to learning.
Our Rivne Regional Lyceum is the place where many children from Rivne districts come to study. It is a home for many students who both study and live here. Although many students live here, some of them come from the suburbs to learn each day. That’s why we decided to take part in the program “Your Ideas, Your Initiatives”.
Taking into account that Ukraine is entering the European Union, we want our roads to be as good. Having interviewed students, we found that most of them want their way to school to be both safe and convenient. They proposed building roads for bicycle riders and setting up some more traffic signs.
Our lyceum is interested in our students’ safety. This year, a student from the 8th form, Angelina Stasiuk, took second place in the Ukrainian contest on people’s health safety. We also teach our students to be devoted and start classes by singing the Ukrainian anthem and praying. Safe and accessible roads allow that our students can always be on time for school. We believe that our government will pay attention to this program and start our educational reforms with safety on the roads.
- We studied information about traffic rules and people’s behavior on the roads. We used information from the internet, observed the behavior of people and police on the street.
- We interviewed the neighbors and pupils about their understanding of road safety on the street.
- We met with local police inspectors to learn how to follow road rules, and how to be more careful on the way to school.
- We organized a poster presentation “Students’ Safety on the Road”.
- We had lessons on "Students' Safety on the Road" and "Road Signs" to make students aware of road safety.
- We made the information on traffic statistics in Ukraine available on classroom doors to show students the necessity of following the rules of the road.
- Finally, we made a presentation to show what we had found out and studied.
