Dear Senior School Families,
In Week 4, students in Year 10 and Year 11 will take part in a Road Safety and Awareness Program, specific to their year level, as part of our Wednesday Wellbeing Series. These sessions are filled with important information about safety and awareness and provide a range of practical strategies to keep them safe as road users, including as pedestrians, passengers and drivers. At times, some of the content that is shared may be confronting for your child and I encourage you to have a discussion with them prior to, and following their session. We also encourage ongoing conversations within your families about safety while on the road. If you have any concerns about your child attending their Road Safety and Awareness session, please don’t hesitate to contact me prior to Week 4 at email@example.com.
