Street Smart Primary
Bookings for 2018 are open now!
As we all interact with the road network every day, we all need to learn and be reminded about road safety. We cannot afford to take it for granted.
RAA and MAC believe that road safety is an important life skill that should be taught from an early age. By learning about road safety in primary school, students can start to develop appropriate skills and knowledge that will help make them safer in the road environment.
Street Smart Primary delivers an interactive, age appropriate road safety presentation for primary school students that emphasises pedestrian, passenger and cycling safety.
The program provides:
- A trained, qualified teacher to assist in the delivery of a 45-minute lesson
- An in-class program
- A choice of four age appropriate lessons or a lesson tailored to suit your students and school
- A team teaching delivery method
- Advice to schools on delivering appropriate follow up programs
- Information for parents/caregivers to continue road safety learning at home
The program is offered as a community service and is free of charge.
Who does the teaching?
A Street Smart teacher will work collaboratively with the classroom teacher to deliver a 45-minute road safety lesson.
What do they teach? Does it relate to the curriculum?
The lessons have been developed using the Way2Go resource and the new Australian Curriculum guidelines. We will work with the classroom teacher to plan a lesson that’s age appropriate for your class.
How many lessons can a school have?
Each school is entitled to one visit per calendar year. The visiting teacher will deliver up to five lessons in one school day to a maximum of 30 students in each class.
Does the classroom teacher need to prepare anything for the lesson?
No. The Street Smart teacher will bring all the required resources.
What preparation is required by the school?
Once a booking is made, your school will be contacted by the Street Smart teacher to arrange a 30-minute site visit to confirm all of the details of the day.
