RYDA Programme


On Tuesday 8 May, Year 10 students were involved in the RYDA Programme. RYDA is a series of practical and powerful workshops for high school students that challenge them to change the way they think about road safety and lay the foundation for safe road use throughout their lives. RYDA focuses on cognition development, building and increasing social competency and resilience and motivating low risk behaviour.

Facilitators on the day worked with students to develop and practise personalised strategies and life skills which will help them respond positively to challenges on the road, both as drivers and highly influential passengers.The scenarios presented to the students made them see how different outcomes can be achieved if better decisions are made. The students were given a lot to think about as they get close to becoming drivers.
