A reward was in place for pupils who have made a positive start to the year to be given the opportunity to attend the WISE DRIVE course at Ayckley Heads – the Durham Constabulary headquarters in Durham City. The WISE DRIVE event is aimed at year 11 students who are almost of age to get a provisional driving licence. There are many practical activities involved including a ‘skid – pan’ session and other motor vehicle events. The course aims to highlight the need for safe drivers to reduce the number of deaths of young drivers on our roads. All pupils who took part were impeccably dressed and extremely well behaved. They learnt some very valuable lessons and will be looking for opportunities to spread the messages they learnt.
