Program information

  3. What is the program outline

    The first 2 hours of ROADwhyz is presentation based, this includes talks from NSW Ambulance Paramedics, Local Police and Highway Patrol Officers and community memebers who have been touched by road trauma. The students then have a 20-30 minute break (this is dictated by the school recess etc). Following the break the students form small groups and begin the workshop component of the program,allowing them a more personal interaction with allpresenters on the day. This is an important part of the progra as it allows some de-briefing time for students to discuss what they have seen and heard.
