Learn to Drive this Summer

December 6, 2020

Exams are almost wrapping up for many of you which means FREEDOM! Woohoo!

Now that you’ll have a bit more time on your hands, why not use it to work towards your driver’s licence? Maintain your study buzz and learn the rode code or if you already have your learners licence – use the extra time to log some driving hours. There are some fantastic resources out there to help you learn and practice. Check out these links for info and advice:

Thanks to SADD (Students Against Dangerous Driving) for this great list of resources.

And if you’ve read this far and you have an interest in keeping students and young people safe on the roads, we are looking for motivated senior students who are looking for a leadership opportunity. It would be great to have 2-4 motivated young people to drive a SADD group in our school.

SADD are an awesome organisation who provide excellent training, mentoring and resources for secondary school students to raise awareness in their school communities about how to keep safe on the roads. 

Email Ms McLaughlin if you’re interested in this leadership opportunity for 2021. (You can be in Years 11-13 next year.)
