Road Safety Education

Road Safety Education (RSE) in schools aims to prepare and equip children and young people with the knowledge, skills and positive attitudes that will enable them to stay safe in and around different traffic environments.

Proudly funded by Transport for NSW, AISNSW shares in a partnership with Catholic Schools NSW, Department of Education, and Kids and Traffic (the Early Childhood Road Safety Education Program at Macquarie University) to support the delivery of road safety education by providing resources and professional learning to teachers in independent schools throughout NSW.
