School­ing the na­tion

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION - Full cov­er­age, pages 16 and 17.

PERTH is now home to Aus­tralia’s best school for teach­ing chil­dren about road safety.

The Con­sta­ble Care Child Safety Foun­da­tion of­fi­cially opened its safety school last Tues­day and has high as­pi­ra­tions that thou­sands of school stu­dents will visit each year.

The hands-on and in­ter­ac­tive school has been her­alded as a fun, prac­ti­cal and en­gag­ing learn­ing cen­tre, and a crit­i­cal de­vel­op­ment given that road trauma is a lead­ing cause of death for West Aus­tralian chil­dren aged un­der 15 and the sec­ond lead­ing cause of se­ri­ous in­jury.

WA Po­lice As­sis­tant Com­mis­sioner Craig Ward, Con­sta­ble Care Child Safety Foun­da­tion chief ex­ec­u­tive David Grib­ble, Con­sta­ble Care and Po­lice Min­is­ter Michelle Roberts at the launch.
