Decisions can lead to consequences that have a lasting impact on lives. Students will reflect on the types of decisions and consequences they may be faced with as a passenger or driver and consider strategies that will help keep them safe in the future.

Students will watch a series of short videos featuring James, Andrew, Claire, Josh and Emily, who are hanging out with friends at a party. The videos follow the friends as they face the decisions regularly encountered by young people on their journey home.

 

Students will reflect on the stories and their own experiences before considering strategies that will help them make safe decisions in the future.
