Our year 10 to 12 road safety education program
Live. Learn. Drive is our free and interactive 3 year road safety program for students from years 10 to 12. The program addresses the road safety issues they’ll encounter on the road to their independence. Over the 3 years, students will receive content that is relevant to them and build upon this knowledge each year. Live.Learn.Drive aligns with the K-10 Australian Curriculum and NSW syllabuses across PDHPE and Science. It has links to both PDHPE and Physics Preliminary and HSC courses, and is aligned with the Life Ready principles. Detailed information relating to syllabus outcomes can be found below.
This section of the program is tailored for year 10 students as they transition into adulthood. We begin the discussion on independent travel and adjusting their mindsets towards their personal safety. Students’ workshop strategies on how to remain safe when travelling without their family. Also how to leverage this transition period to better prepare themselves for planning their own travel, managing employment and education, as well as instilling a mindful attitude towards independence.

The final section of the program is tailored for year 12 students. We discuss the implications of becoming the designated driver; responsible for not only your own safety but that of your passengers and other road users. Student’ workshop strategies on how they can reduce the road toll for young drivers by debriefing the crash statistics for their demographic and discussing safer driving behaviours that they can adopt. Students also learn about the importance of buying a safe first car and where to find trusted information to help them make an informed decision.
