On the Road to Change

Year 9 students at Mercy used the awarded grant to create performances for primary students at Our Lady of Dolours Catholic School Chatswood and St Patricks Catholic School Asquith, which were put on towards the end of last year.

The interactive performances focused on pedestrian safety, passenger safety, and safety on wheels.

Schools were encouraged to implement a PDHPE Road Safety ‘Unit’ or Focus of 3-5 lessons prior to the performance, which could be further enhanced with a survey project discussing the safety of the school zone.

“Our students have this fantastic opportunity through performance to connect with primary school students on road safety issues that are relevant to primary-aged children,” said Amy Gill, drama teacher at Mercy.
