AISNSW Approach to Road Safety Education
Road Safety Education (RSE) in schools plays a major role in shaping students’ attitudes and behaviours as responsible drivers, passengers, pedestrians and cyclists. AISNSW is committed to supporting teachers to implement quality RSE in their classrooms and schools. Since RSE in schools commenced in 1986, there has been greatly improved awareness amongst young people of ways in which they can stay safe on and around roads. RSE is embedded in both the NSW PDHPE K-10 and Stage 6 syllabuses.
In addition, there are further opportunities for RSE messages to be addressed through a school’s Student Wellbeing Program, whole-school activities such as assemblies as well as through a range of other subjects such as English, Mathematics, Geography and Science & Technology.
