City of Gosnells: Remembering Road Crash Victims

Posted on: Tuesday, 18 December 2018 at 12:00:00 AM

The City of Gosnells remembered road crash victims as part of a World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims ceremony held at Thornlie Senior High School.

Each year, World Day of Remembrance is commemorated at a different school.

Students are informed about the importance of being aware and alert on the roads as pedestrians, passengers and behind the wheel.

This year’s event included guest speakers from the City of Gosnells, WA Police Force, the Road Safety Commission and a previous student who told of her experience as she continues her recovery after being struck by a car as a pedestrian last year.

The school’s lyrical team and dancers performed and white roses were placed on the reflection bench, which was gifted to the school, as a sign of remembrance.
