NAKHON SI THAMMARAT Province, Thailand – September 30, 2021
As Covid-19 restrictions eased in Nakhon Si Thammarat Province, Thailand, we were delighted to see a glimpse of return to ‘normal’ life. During September, road safety activities as part of the Chevron Street Wise program were finally held on-site. This month marked many diverse highlights of Phase III of the program for students of all ages across schools in the region.
Students at Wat Ta Pae School, in Mueang District, were thrilled to explore hands-on ‘how to be safe on the roads’ at the newly installed Chevron Street Wise Road Safety Corner. The Road Safety Corner serves as an interactive road safety teaching area and tool for the primary students at the school. AIP Foundation also organized a pre-study quiz on road safety for the students from grades 2 to 6 at Wat Ta Pae School to raise awareness about the importance of safety on the road.
A further highlight was marked by Mr. Thanawut Thawornpram, Mayor of Pak Poon Municipality, who was truly honored to be the chairman of the Handover of the Road Simulations to the 5 project schools in Mueang District. The Road Simulation establishes an innovative road safety teaching tool for the primary students. Through the simulation, students will be able to practice life-saving road safety skills and learn how to be safe when traveling to and from school.
One of the most memorable highlights was the filming of the “30 Safety Rules” video as part of the Chevron Street Wise Phase III. The video features key information on how students can stay safe. This video was filmed together with representatives from Nakhon Si Thammarat Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Office, Nakhon Si Thammarat Provincial Transport Office, Nakhon Si Thammarat Provincial Police, Nakhon Si Thammarat Provincial Public Health Office, Tha Phae Municipality School, and the team from the Faculty of Photography and Video Technology Nakhon Si Thammarat Arts and Crafts College. This video will be officially launched at the end of September.
Chevron Thailand has partnered with AIP Foundation since 2014 to implement the Chevron Street Wise program to create a safer environment for road users – especially young children – through education, awareness-raising, as well as stakeholders, and community engagement. The project has benefited more than 30,000 children, parents, teachers, and community members who have demonstrated improved road safety knowledge and skills.
