School holiday safety program
CHANCE TO LEARN ROAD SENSE WITH CONSTABLE CARE
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.
