Are you looking to teach your primary school students how to be safer around the roads? RAC Community Education has fun and interactive programs to help teach Pre-Primary to Year 6 students road safety.
Distance learning series
In line with supporting government advice designed to limit the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have suspended our in-class delivery of road safety workshops across WA. However, our commitment to road safety education remains as strong as ever, which is why we have adapted a series of distance learning road safety lessons and activities for primary school students.
Building on our existing Around the Roads program, these learning resources teach students about bicycle, passenger and pedestrian safety.
This easy to follow series aligns with the WA Curriculum (PDF 80KB) and can be adapted and utilised by teachers in the classroom or delivered in the current format at home.

Edition 2 - Pedestrian safety

Edition 3 - Bikes, skateboards and scooters

Edition 4 - Passenger safety
