The Constable Care Safety School
is located in Maylands, and provides a unique opportunity for children to explore real-life transport risks and practice road, rail, pedestrian, bike and public transport safety skills in a safe, realistic urban environment.
Suitable for children aged 4-12 years, the Safety School allows kids to experience what it’s like to be out on footpaths and roads, without any of the actual risks involved. This state-of-the-art experiential learning centre allows primary school groups to learn and practice bicycle, pedestrian and public transport safety skills in a realistic, working road layout that incorporates the latest in augmented reality learning and that links to and reinforces the classroom road safety curriculum.
Last year Arc announced the continuation of its support of the Constable Care Safety School
through a three-year Principle Partnership.
As part of this partnership, we invite school administrators and teachers to express their interest to go into the draw to win a free school excursion by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
by Friday, 9 September
. Please include a short note outlining which school you are representing and the age group of the class/es you would like to attend (up to 60 students).
During Rail Safety Week we are also taking the opportunity to remind the community to be alert and safe around rail:
This is the 17th year of Rail Safety Week, which sees rail operators, police, governments and community organisations unite by organising various activities such as media events, safety demonstrations, hosting webinars and virtual events, along with engaging with schools & community groups to raise awareness on the importance of rail safety.
Fatalities, incidents and near hits on the network can cause severe and lasting trauma to the rail employees involved, and the majority of these incidents can be avoided.
