RAC’s Community Education team had a busy 2015. From the Kimberley right through to Esperance in the south, we travelled to 13 regions across WA to talk about road safety. More than 56,000 Western Australians took part in interactive lessons, including primary and secondary school students, community groups and participants in the juvenile justice program.

A memorable presentation was given to residents of the Erskine National Lifestyle Village in the Peel region. We talked about reducing the WA road fatality rate and some fantastic proactive initatives came from the residents, who discussed the importance of working together in their community to reduce serious injuries and fatalities.

Residents left with a broader knowledge of what the Government and RAC are doing to reduce the State’s road fatality rate. We’d like to thank the residents for their support and upbeat approach towards making positve changes to improve road safety in the Mandurah area.

The Community Education team also had the chance to give our voices a rest for the day while keeping our hands busy at Foodbank WA. We worked extremely hard counting, chopping and packing 900kg of sausages to be frozen and delivered across WA to those in need.  We think it might be a while before the team suggests a BBQ, but check out these happy snaps!

One of our Community Education Officers, Kathryn, visited the Western Australian Primary Principles Association (WAPPA) headquarters with her friend Ash from RAC’s Little Legends Club. They filmed a short video about how we are helping primary schools develop an interactive and engaging road safety program. Here’s a sneak peak from behind the scene.  Lights, camera and action!

We would like to thank those who participated in one of our programs last year and wish everyone a safe and happy 2016.
