Bookings are now open for RAA’s 2023 Street Smart Primary program, which aims to reduce road trauma by educating the next generation of road users from an early age.
We’ve been running South Australia’s primary school road safety lessons – supported by Think! Road Safety and Lifetime Support Authority – since 2014. In that time, we’ve visited more than 700 schools and taught more than 140,000 students how to be safer around roads.
RAA School Education Manager David Fairlie said the free program involves a 45-minute road safety lesson tailored to each year level.
“Street Smart Primary is a free incursion for schools that is linked to the Australian curriculum.”
“It gives schools the opportunity to have a trained teacher from RAA, who’s knowledgeable in the field, to come in and instruct the students all about road safety.
“We develop and run classes that are suitable for all primary ages – from reception, all the way through to year six.
“It’s vitally important because we all interact with the road every day. As young students head to school, they need to understand the importance of being safe around the roads as well.”
Mr Fairlie said RAA was taking bookings now for lesson held in 2023.
“We visit hundreds of metropolitan and regional schools per year and enquiries are now open for any South Australian Primary School that wants their students to learn about road safety from an early age.”
