The Road Safe programme provides learning activities to empower students to participate safely as responsible road users who are aware of their own place in the traffic environment, as well as that of others.

In this year 9–10 programme students will learn:

  • about the process of creating laws and what happens when laws are broken (Social Sciences)
  • about rights and responsibilities and social pressures to be a safe and unsafe road user (English)
  • how speed, light, forces, friction and energy affect safety on the road (Science and Mathematics)
  • how personal behaviours related to rights and responsibilities, risk and safety management, and attitudes and values affect the safety of road users (Health Education)
  • how to design a solution to a road hazard (Technology).
