Promoting the Activities of the Kalbarri RoadWise Committee

Posted on: Tuesday, 26 September 2017 at 12:00:00 AM

Margi spoke about the role of the Kalbarri RoadWise Committee and its contribution to the community, such as advocacy for reduced speed limits and improved roads, and community awareness of road safety issues. 

Approximately 120 Kalbarri District High School students designed artwork for the Kalbarri Passport to help remind visitors about the importance of driving safely. The winning artwork will feature on the front page of the passport, with 11 runner up artworks to be included in the booklet. 

Winning students were presented with certificates and prizes on the day, with all others praised for their great work. 

Margi reminded all students of their important role in keeping everyone safe on the roads - being safe passengers and pedestrians. 

Kal Kangaroo, the Kalbarri road safety mascot took time off from his travels with the local Police to make an appearance and meet the students. 

You can see Kal on his Facebook page (www.facebook.com/KalKangarooKalbarri) or on the Kalbarri Police Twitter feed (www.twitter.com/KalbarriPol).
