Off The Rails
The railway initiative is delivered in partnership with South Wes Trains and is delivered in a one off two hour session in school by a Pompey in the Community officer with support from South West Trains employees. Children are made aware of the dangers that the rail system can create using Portsmouth FC as the hook to engage youngsters.
As part of their learning, children are asked to create a rail safety poster, that they consider will help keep other people, especially children, ‘Off The Rails’. The schools then nominate their best designs to go forward to a judging panel of employees from South West Trains and Portsmouth Football Club. The winning poster is then displayed at stations and schools.
The sessions are available to primary schools across the city and surrounding areas. For more information please contact James Lang on 02392 728899 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
