Around 100 students from 20 independent boy schools in Doha participated in a training workshop recently held by the Qatar Transportation and Traffic Safety Centre (QTTSC) at Qatar University College of Engineering (QU-CENG).
Themed “Traffic Safety Ambassadors”, the workshop was organised in co-ordination with the Ministry of Interior and the National Committee for Traffic Safety. It was sponsored by Qatar Petrochemical Company (QAPCO). The workshop aimed to spread the culture of traffic safety among high school students.
The trained students are expected to run workshops, campaigns and sessions within their schools to raise awareness on the importance of traffic safety. By the end of the academic year, each school will present a report on its activities.
General Directorate of Traffic awareness section head First Lieutenant Fahd al-Abdullah and General Directorate of Traffic studies section head Captain Ali al-Ettabah, as well as CENG and QTTSC faculty and staff attended the workshop.
The participating students were oriented by staff members from QU and the General Directorate of Traffic on various procedures to run traffic safety campaigns at schools.
CENG dean and QTTSC director Dr Khalifa al-Khalifa said: “Through this initiative, QTTSC strives to involve high school students in spreading traffic safety culture within the community, in line with the objectives of the National Strategy for Traffic Safety 2013-2022. This showcases the centre’s commitment to encourage students to create awareness programmes and to provide solutions that tackle traffic safety challenges in Qatar.”
