Michelin Man to meet students

Have your say

The famous Michelin Man will visit Barnsley College next Wednesday to meet students working on the tyre company’s latest road safety project.

Polish-speaking students have been asked to provide the voices for an educational video to teach young people in their homeland about road safety.

The commission came from a partnership with local entrepreneur and puppeteer, Steve Wright.

Steve from the Puppet Broadcasting Company was asked by Michelin to translate his videos about road safety, which he has created using his puppets, into five different languages - Polish is the first.

This first video will be distributed to Polish schools and colleges and it is hoped a link will be forged between a Polish college and Barnsley College later this year.
