URGENT
A  Y3 child was struck by a car this morning while crossing Greenhill Road/Sunnybank Road.  It is really important that children cross at the traffic lights or with the crossing lady.  The child was admitted to hospital and is staying overnight but he's on the mend.  I want to thank the crossing lady (Mrs Richards) who handled the situation brilliantly.  Please could all parents remind your child about the importance of road safety!  Thanks.
