MARIGOT: The presentation of 70 diplomas attesting to the first road safety education to the pupils of the CM2 classes of the Emile Choisy elementary school, comes to close the 2021 training of the 8 elementary schools of Saint Martin.
It is worth noting the presence of Andy Armongon representing the Vice Rectorate and Sonia Fleming, famous poetess of Saint Martin, who delighted the audience with the reading of a poem related to road safety and the youth of Saint Martin.
During the year 2021, the SXM road safety association, reinforced by the teachers of the visited classes, intervened with 1200 pupils of the classes of CE2, CM1 and CM2, of the public elementary school of the territory. These students benefited from 8 hours of theoretical and practical training.
This action is part of the policy to reduce road risks, initiated by the Prefecture of Saint Barthélemy/Saint Martin and the Collectivité de Saint Martin in the framework of the city policy.
Let’s hope that this road safety training for the youngest members of St. Martin’s population will curb the number of road accidents involving injuries and fatalities on our island.
