Defensive Driving

11 August 2017

Years 11 and 12 students, who have the minimum of a learner’s permit, have the opportunity to participate in a defensive driving course run by Safe Drive Training Australia at Willowbank via Ipswich on Saturday, 9 September. As many Senior students 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 Middle and Senior Years administration office by Monday, 21 August.

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 resumé.

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.

An enrolment form, permission slip and extra information can be found on the School Portal calendar - Saturday 9 September.
