You Choose Road Safety Incursion

An excursion has been organised to support the following work being completed at school: On Monday 7th June, we have Melissa McGuinness from ‘You Choose – Youth Road Safety’ coming in to speak to our Year 10 cohort about road safety choices and consequences, which aligns with their Risky Business Unit in PDHPE for Term 1. Melissa McGuinness is a Gold Coast resident and mother of 3 children, who is continuing to live with the loss of her 18-year-old son in a road accident in 2012. We recognise and understand that some students might find Melissa’s story upsetting and confronting, but we believe that it is important to expose our students to real life lessons, and this one will be particularly relevant to a group of young people who are just beginning their preparation for an experience of driving. If you would like to gain an insight into what Melissa’s presentation is about, please visit her Facebook ‘You Choose – Youth Road Safety’ page. Please note that there may be a maximum number of students who may attend this event (see above). The signed permission note must be returned to the front office. We strongly encourage your child to attend this activity, as it will be a positive and valuable learning experience.
