🚗 RYDA DRIVER SAFETY 🚗 Last week our Year 10 and 11 students were given the opportunity to attend the award-winning RYDA Road Safety Education workshop. RYDA is designed for 16-17 year olds as they begin to drive or ride in cars driven by their peers. This workshop, supports classroom learning and part of a broader program that provided students with the tools, habits and motivation to take action and stay safe on our roads throughout their lives, as both drivers and passengers. In small groups, students worked 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 combined interactive activities, demonstrations and personal stories which the students really valued. Thank you to RYDA Driver Safety, Mr Bryant and all the teachers who supported this excursion. Catholic Schools Parramatta Diocese
