A message from the Foundation Team

This week we had the RACV Street Scene Incursion come to visit Foundation students. A Safety Expert from RACV taught students about the importance of road safety. We spoke about how to safely cross the road, use public transport and ride our bikes/scooters. We looked at various road signs and spoke about what they mean. This incursion links to our Inquiry topic of Transport and supports student’s understanding of road transportation.
