Learn­ers hit road with PCYC

Western Times - - BEST OF THE WEST -

THERE is some­thing about see­ing a young per­son learn to drive that fills Kelly Ryan with joy.

She is not sure whether it is the ex­cite­ment in the young per­son’s eyes, or watch­ing them grow into young adults.

It is for this rea­son that Mrs Ryan is look­ing for­ward to the next two months for the Dalby PCYC Brake the Cy­cle pro­gram.

The pro­gram has re­ceived gen­er­ous fund­ing to ad­vance its pro­gram at the PCYC and a new school pro­gram will be pi­loted on Fri­day.

The new pro­gram, which will start at Our Lady of the South­ern Cross Col­lege, will in­volve be­tween six and eight stu­dents in Term 3.

The pro­gram will take stu­dents who are dis­ad­van­taged and help them learn ev­ery­thing from road rules to pay­ing for car in­sur­ance.

Mrs Ryan, the pro­gram co-or­di­na­tor at the Dalby PCYC, hopes the first in­stal­ment of the school pro­gram will be a suc­cess.

“I am hop­ing that the stu­dents who do this pro­gram will gain con­fi­dence in driv­ing,” Mrs Ryan said.
