Rotary on Capricorn Coast Youth Driver Awareness

Combined Clubs of the district in partnership with Road Safety Education Limited is offering  senior high school  students in 2018  a road safety education  program.  The flagship RYDA Program is delivered each year to over 50,000 senior high school students from more than 650 participating schools.

Yeppoon High School has included this program into its curriculum  for  Monday 14 May 2018, and will be undertaking at the PYC complex in Yeppoon.

At RYDA, students attend six interactive sessions at a dedicated venue over the course of a school day. In small peer groups, they are challenged to change the way they think about road safety; participating in a stopping distance demonstration, devising personalised strategies, gaining an understanding of their individual risk profile and getting tips from road safety experts on how to protect themselves, their friends and family.

The greatest impact at RYDA often comes from the personal stories of loss and survival where students come to realise how one poor choice can change a life forever.

By participating in RYDA, schools further their commitment to educating the ‘whole student’, providing a unique opportunity to learn essential life skills as they face the challenges of driving solo or as an influential passenger of a novice driver.

Now is the time to equip young people with the tools and knowledge they need to stay safe on the road.
