The school road safety programmes from the Police School Community Service (SCS) provide young people with appropriate road safety skills and practices at all levels of their schooling.

  • Changing Gear for years 9-10 empowers young people to participate safely as responsible road users, aware of their own place in traffic, as well as that of others.
  • A Msg in Contxt for years 11-13 is an educational resource aimed at raising students' awareness of the risk factors and conditions that contribute to road crashes, with a particular focus on strategies to avoid texting and driving.
  • Drive Qual for years 11-13 is a series of modules designed to build the knowledge and positive attitudes that young drivers need to keep themselves and others safe while driving on the road.

Other resources to go with these programmes can be got from the Police Education Officer at your local police station.
