Camden Group are helping the teachers and pupils of Maine Integrated Primary School in Randalstown stay safe on the roads, donating 150 high-visibility jackets.

The uPVC manufacturer based in Antrim, have taken responsibility in ensuring the pupils and staff of the local Primary school are kept safe on their school journey, with the donation of the safety jackets. The fluorescent reflector jackets will increase the visibility of the children and teachers when walking outside the schools premises.

Representatives of the company visited the school to hand over the jackets to the Principal and pupils. The primary school based in Randalstown, have put the jackets to great use wearing them on various extracurricular activities including the schools cycling proficiency scheme.

The jackets will also be put to use on future school trips and are now a part of the pupil’s uniform, as some children based in the town may walk to and from school. Senior Primary 7 teacher, Heather Mc Cann highlights the impact the jackets will have for the children’s safety. “Children’s safety is of the utmost importance to us here at Maine and now, thanks to Camden Group, we have the most effective way of ensuring their safety when escorting them off school site. This in turn provides peace of mind for staff and adults responsible.”

Camden Groups donation will play an impact in the Randalstown community, with over 130 pupils, and the staff at Maine Integrated Primary School now protected on their travels to and from school. Road safety is a core value of Camden Group, and a small token such as this donation, will in the future play a huge role in protecting the community.

We would like to personally thank Maine Integrated Primary School for allowing us to visit the school and provide the safety jackets for the pupils & staff.
