Road Safety Awareness Lessons

4/11/2013
In week one of this term educators from the RACQ's Streets Ahead Education team visited to deliver a road safety education program for each class.  The Streets Ahead program comprised of a four level-appropriate presentations covering road safety themes including passenger, pedestrian and bicycle safety offered in a fresh and interactive approach.
All classes were involved in fun and interactive road safety programs.
Prep and Year 1 students learnt how to identify and use a variety of pedestrian crossings safely. They discovered the concept of the 'safety door' and why it is important. Students also learnt how to become a responsible vehicle passenger.
 
Year 1/2/3 covered how to cross roads safely using an interactive crossing display (“stop, look, listen, think”), be a responsible vehicle passenger (not a distraction) and identify how to wear a bike helmet correctly.
 
Year 3/4 investigated and discovered what elements are needed to make a safe cyclist including correct clothing, equipment, cycling behaviour and road rules.
 
Year 5/6/7 students reviewed their knowledge of pedestrian, passenger and cyclist safety through interactive questions and experiments. “Eggbert” was a favourite character. A hands on Nintendo demonstration of driving with distractions was a highlight. Students also learnt to identify the effects of wearing and not wearing a seatbelt, as well as learn the causes and dangers of distractions (not only mobiles).
 
All students had opportunity to strengthen their knowledge of road safety, identify possible bad habits and ways to avoid them, and revise essential road safety concepts.
