On Thursday 18th May, AKS students were treated to a live concert experience from the likes of Frankie Vu and Robbie White, who were representing Lancashire County Council’s “One Road, Many Users” campaign.
This Roadshow is touring schools to get across the message that Lancashire has the greatest risk of accidents involving school pupils, and what easy steps they can take to stay safe.
The whole experience was very invigorating and interactive, including a game of statistic bingo, which a very lucky boy in my year won (I hear that the prize was fantastic). Some lucky volunteers also got the opportunity to play a game of “Truth or Lies?” boys vs. girls version onstage. The game involved the use of a jazzy buzzer system and some boards with statistics. The girls’ team won after an intense final! They too walked away with some fab prizes.
The experience also involved live music from Mr Robbie White (who I received a signed photo from!) and some dancing and football skills to add to the performance too.
I learnt many new stats and facts from the experience, which was trying to persuade young people to walk to school and clubs safely. The experience was also given to Years 7 and 8. I will remember it, and how to stay safe, for many years.
