School hol­i­day safety pro­gram


The Advocate (Perth) - - NEWS -

FOR the first time dur­ing school hol­i­days, Con­sta­ble Care will open the doors to Perth’s most ex­cit­ing ed­u­ca­tional ex­cur­sion des­ti­na­tion.

Based on the prin­ci­ples of learn­ing through play, the Con­sta­ble Care Safety School in­cludes a fully func­tion­ing rail­way cross­ing, traf­fic lights, pedes­trian cross­ing and train sta­tion.

Con­sta­ble Care chief ex­ec­u­tive David Grib­ble said the site pro­vided a great op­por­tu­nity to im­pact the safety prac­tices of WA’s youngest trav­ellers.

“Chil­dren can ex­pe­ri­ence a scaled­down ver­sion of Perth roads in a safe en­vi­ron­ment, and prac­tise their bi­cy­cle and pedes­trian skills in a sim­u­lated-risk en­vi­ron­ment, en­sur­ing safer trav­els as they ex­plore their city.”

The venue also has aug­mented-re­al­ity ac­tiv­i­ties ideal for help­ing tech-ad­dicted chil­dren to learn valu­able pedes­trian safety lessons.

Since its open­ing in Oc­to­ber, the Con­sta­ble Care Safety School has wel­comed more than 2000 stu­dents on group ex­cur­sions.

Mr Grib­ble said the hol­i­day ses­sions would reach even more young peo­ple, with kinder­garten and home-schooled chil­dren now able to ac­cess the ser­vice.

Pub­lic open ses­sions will be avail­able for chil­dren aged 4-11 years through­out se­lected dates this month.
