Waverley College Year 11 students have the opportunity to attend the award-winning RYDA Road Safety Education workshop (COVIDSafe measures will apply). RYDA is designed for 16-17 year olds, as they begin to drive or ride in cars driven by their peers.

This workshop, which supports classroom learning as part of a broader program, provides students with the tools, habits and motivation to take action and stay safe on our roads, throughout their lives, as both drivers and passengers. Students do not need to have their license to take part in the workshop.

This is the perfect time in students’ lives to engage in this program as it addresses, in a real and practical way, the many dangers and challenges young people face on our roads.

In small groups, students work with facilitators to develop and practise personalised strategies and life skills, which will help them make positive choices, both as drivers and highly influential passengers.

The workshop combines personal stories, demonstrations and interactive activities to ensure that students are engaged during the sessions.
