CathWest Year 10 students attended the 2022 bstreetsmart event at Qudos Stadium, Olympic Park on Wednesday 3rd August. bstreetsmart was launched 17 years ago by the Trauma Service at Westmead Hospital as an effort to reduce the fatality and injury rates of young people by promoting safe behaviour as drivers, riders and passengers. Students and teachers experienced and learned about the impact of dangerous/distracted driving and the consequences for those directly and indirectly involved in a crash through a live enactment of a realistic accident scene which followed the life changing event for three teenagers. Students heard the stories shared by three people physically affected by road trauma. These were both inspiring and confronting. Finally, students heard the reflections of a mother who had lost her son as the driver of a car that was the cause of an horrific accident. Year 10 CathWest students are to be commended for their positive engagement in this learning experience and their travel to and from the venue.
