Journeys : August September 2009
In our community Road safety education in every Tasmanian school We’re not giving up! Sheffield School is one of the Tasmanian schools that makes driver education compulsory for all year 10 students, including Rose Maddick (left) and Nikita Roughley. Assistant Principal Ron Daly says that teachers use the Road Risk Reduction and driven2distraction resources to involve students in practical and theoretical activities that relate to pre-driver awareness. As part of the program, the school arranges a Keys to Ps night, highlighting the importance of the relationship between learner drivers and their mentor drivers. Students also attend the Rotary Youth Driver Awareness day (see our page 8 story). “We believe our Driver Education Program is valued by the students and by the wider community,” Mr Daly says. “It is important to educate our young people not only on the risks associated with driving but also on how to keep themselves safe in and around cars.” The RACT congratulates Sheffield School on its commitment to helping students develop positive attitudes to driving and road safety. And we ask – why isn’t this example followed in every single Tasmanian high school? August / September 09 5 Mark Seaton
