Students get safety drive lessons
November 26 2009
Pupils at a north-east academy were given lessons on safety driving and vehicle maintenance, a newspaper reports.
The lessons could be potentially life-saving for the sixth year students at the Mintlaw Academy, The Press and Journal has said.
"They are all at an age when they are learning to drive, or have just passed their driving test, so it is important that they learn about safety on the roads," said Andrew Kilpatrick, a guidance teacher at the school, told the news provider.
The scheme was launched after an Ellon Academy pupil was killed in a road crash in 1998 the newspaper adds.
In other news, about 90 per cent of teachers in Scotland said they think their students are well behaved, according to a study conducted by the Behaviour in Scottish Schools Research. The study also showed that there have been "positive changes" since the last time the survey was carried out three years ago.
