Year 11 Road Awareness Program (RAP) - 20 Sept 2018

On Thursday, 20th September, students in Year 11 at Victor Harbor High School have the opportunity to be involved in a Road Awareness Program conducted by South Australian Metropolitan Fire Service.

A firefighter from the MFS will be visiting your school to speak with students about:

  • good attitudes, smart decision making and safe behaviours

  • the dangers of excessive speeds, distractions and driving under the influence

  • being a responsible passenger and pedestrian

  • becoming a responsible driver

  • first-hand experience of the trauma suffered by all parties involved in both fatal and non-fatal road crashes

Past students who’ve experienced the program describe it as “confronting” and “hard-hitting”. Many report that it has an enormous positive impact, not only in their approach to road use, but in their attitude as responsible and selfless members of society. We believe that after completing RAP, students are equipped with a broader understanding of how their choices impact others, and how they can support each other to make better decisions.

If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact your school 8551 1900 or RAP on 8204 3600.
