Kids' Safety Program
If you are a teacher and you are is interested in running the program at your primary school, visit www.scootersafety.org.au for more information.
What happens on the day?
Through a successful, tried and tested curriculum of fun practical workshops and games, children learn safety rules they can rely on to ensure their security amongst road users.
Children learn the functions and importance of the helmet, elbow and knee pads. They learn new practical techniques, such as braking correctly, curving and controlling falls to help prevent injury.
Fun techniques such as leg swapping, balance and slalom manoeuvres are aimed at improving balance and co-ordination which, in turn, further promote the children's safety on their scooters.
All the children are required to wear a helmet, elbow pads and knee pads. A scooter and all other relevant material is provided courtesy of micro® scooters.
The children learn that only by respecting the rules and having the appropriate equipment can they avoid injury and accidents.
