Defensive Driving Course – Willowbank

19 August 2016

Saturday 10th September

Years 11 and 12 students who have the minimum of a learner’s permit have the opportunity to participate in a Defensive Driving Course. The course will be run by Safe Drive Training Australia at Willowbank via Ipswich on Saturday, 10 September.

As many Glennie seniors now have either their learner’s or provisional licence, this is a great opportunity for them to improve their skills on the road. Preference will be given to our current Year 12 students but Year 11 students are strongly encouraged to apply.

All completed applications should be returned to administration at The Glennie School by Monday, 22 August 2016.

The course runs all day at Willowbank with manual and automatic cars supplied for participants. The program’s objectives focus specifically on overconfidence, risk-taking, inexperience and peer influence. Students will receive a certificate of participation for their resume.

The cost of the course will be heavily subsidised by the Parents and Friends Association (often reduced to around half price in past years) but a final cost for each student attending this year will not be known until we receive completed applications and can confirm final numbers.

Applications, including information, have been emailed to parents of Years 11 and 12 students and are also available on the School’s Portal calendar – Saturday 10 September.

For further information, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Natalie Bennett  on 07 4688 8745 or email
