Road safety in the new PDHPE K-10 syllabus, for secondary teachers

Two day workshop information:

Day 1 - Road safety education: Safer behaviours through PDHPE 7-10

Day 2 - Local schools: 7 - 10 road safety education

In this two day workshop teachers will explore the PDHPE K-10 syllabus through a road safety and whole-school community lens, and plan what this looks like for their students.
