Representatives from the RYDA Road Safety Program, Rotary Clubs of Toowoomba, Queensland Police Service and Queensland Ambulance Service visited Glennie this week to deliver empowering advice to our Years 10 and 11 students to become responsible road citizens.
In the Mind States session, students explored the importance of how they are feeling and the music they listen to while driving. A Speed and Stopping session took place outdoors, giving the girls a chance to witness the importance of observing their driving speed. In the Crash Investigator session, girls learned about what to do if ever involved in a crash or are the first to arrive at a crash scene. Wendy, our guest speaker, delivered a thought-provoking message to students after her own tragic experience in a motor vehicle accident. Road Choices, Drive SOS and The ‘I’ in Drive sessions also gave students a great deal to think about when they are next behind the wheel.
Our aspiring and current learner drivers now have the tools and motivation to take action and stay safe on our roads as both drivers and passengers throughout their lives.
