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 with your child about keeping themselves safe 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.

Year 11 – Wednesday 11 August
The Road Awareness Program has been cancelled for 2021 due to COVID-19 restrictions. The Year 11 students will participate in an adapted Road Safety session, provided by school pastoral staff, and will include elements from the Road Awareness Program. We encourage all Senior School families to discuss road safety with your child, so that we can all work together to ensure our community are safe road users, whether they are L or P plate drivers, passengers or pedestrians.
If you have any questions about the above, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
