Be Street Smart
The Year 10 REACH class had the opportunity to attend RAC Arena for the RACbstreetsmart event this week. With over 7000 students from across Perth, the event was well attended and proved to be a significant experience for the girls.
The content was at times confronting, as presenters took us through a simulated crash scenario and we heard from survivors of real-life car accidents. The purpose of the day was to ask young people to take their driving responsibilities and the rules around this, seriously. The students were left with the positive message that safe driving saves lives.
The bstreetsmart event challenged the girls to think about how their choices can have consequences for both themselves, their parents, friends and the community. As they start the exciting journey into adulthood and the independence afforded to them when they get their driver’s license, these students will have the opportunity to put what they learnt at this event into practice. It was a real moment of connecting learning to life.
