Over 1,300 Welwyn Hatfield youngsters were given life lessons in a series of sessions held at The University of Hertfordshire.
The Crucial Crew programme, coordinated by the borough council, involved Year 6 pupils from Welwyn Hatfield and elsewhere being taught about railway, fire and electrical safety, antisocial behaviour, and mindfulness.
Councillor Bernard Sarson said: “We want our young people to feel equipped and ready for the new challenges they’ll start to face. Crucial Crew uses interactive sessions to bring these challenges to life.”
He added: “As technology and society changes, so do the risks – so our session on e-safety addresses this, as well as the mindfulness session to tackle the increasingly frequent mental health issues that we are seeing in young people.”
The event, funded by the university and delivered by the Community Safety Partnership, was targeted at Year 6 pupils between June 4 and June 14.
