Yr 10 Wellbeing: Driver Safety – a responsibility not a right

17 September 2012 by

On Wednesday 12 September all Yr 10 students attended a presentation as part of their Wellbeing unit, “Driver Safety: a Responsibility not a Right”. The students listened to a guest speaker Salina Nightingale. Salina became a paraplegic in a motor cycle accident six years ago. Her life story including before and after the accident was inspiring, and at the same time sobering, as it reminded students of the risks associated with becoming a licenced driver. This presentation is part of a six week Driver Safety unit at Yr 10, that has included a RACV Keys Please session, a presentation from the Police and in-class activities and discussions that have focussed on the risks and responsibilities of driving on our roads.
