“bstreetsmart”

On Tuesday 20th August Year 11 attended the “bstreetsmart” forum at All Phones Arena Homebush Bay.

“bstreeetsmart” is the inspiring initiative of the Trauma Service at Westmead Hospital. Westmead’s Trauma Service is constantly reminded through their hands on work that young people aged 15 – 30 are disproportionally represented in road trauma. As a result they have a strong commitment to Road Safety Education.

The purpose of “bstreetsmart” is to reduce the fatality and injury rates of young people by promoting safe behaviour as drivers, riders and passengers. 



“bstreetsmart” provides students with first hand experiences and:

• An understanding of their responsibilities as a driver and as a responsible passenger.

• Information and strategies to avoid serious injuries and death.

• Information on how to reduce risk taking behaviour through greater awareness of the consequences of distracted driving, inattention, speeding, drink and drug driving and driver fatigue.

Gymea Technology High School students experienced a real life accident scenario using police, ambulance officers, paramedics, fire fighters and accident investigation experts, a very emotional experience! There were also many interactive displays which allowed student participation. These displays were run by many organisations including driving schools, the various emergency services, the NRMA, St Johns Ambulance, Careflight, and Organ Donation Australia.

Overall this was a very valuable experience for our students providing them with the skills and awareness to not only make their own lives safer, but possibly help save the lives of others!
