Council supports driving ambition in Orkney
A programme aimed at helping steer new drivers in the right direction will be rolled out to secondary pupils across Orkney this month.
The ‘Driving Ambition’ pre-driver education programme provides young drivers with information on a variety of road safety elements, the main aim of which is to encourage them to be safe and responsible learners, drivers and passengers.
Orkney Islands Council along with its partners will deliver the programme to fifth year pupils from Kirkwall Grammar School and Stromness Academy and fourth year pupils from Sanday Community School, Stronsay Junior High and Westray Junior High Schools.
This year’s event kicks off at the Halls of Residence with pupils from Kirkwall Grammar School attending on Tuesday, September 20, followed by Stromness Academy on Wednesday, September 21, and then Halls of Residence for Kirkwall Grammar, Sanday, Stronsay and Westray pupils.
