The Safety School Experience
The Constable Care Safety School is opening in term 4 2017 and will be WA's first road and transport safety school. This exciting excursion destination provides primary school students with a hands-on opportunity to learn about travel safety in a fun, engaging and realistic environment. Based on the best-practice education principles of learning through play and simulation, primary school children can practice pedestrian, bike and public transport safety skills that link directly to the WA Curriculum.
The Safety School will feature a replica town with fully-functioning traffic lights and rail crossings. It will also incorporate an exciting augmented reality experience, where students use iPad minis to view travel risks in the environment and make decisions about what to do to solve the safety problems presented.
Students also experience the Safety School environment on bicycles, with the opportunity to practice cycling on shared use paths and on roads that incorporate working urban features such as traffic lights, rail crossings, school zones, pedestrian crossings and stop and give way signs.
This exciting excursion destination will teach students aged 4-11 the road safety skill that could one day save their lives.
