TEACHER RESOURCES

“This is a very good program and should be taught at all levels in schools to teach students about public safety on public transport. Thanks for developing such a useful resource.” 

Val Fasciani, Teacher, North Lake Senior Campus

The Right Track teaching resources give teachers an easy and concise way to teach students why there is a code of behavior for public transport by looking at the rights and responsibilities of all passengers. By educating young people on the consequences of unsafe behaviour around public transport teachers can help reduce risk-taking behaviour. The resources adopt a strength-based approach by supporting students to develop the knowledge, understanding and skills they require to make healthy, safe and active choices that will enhance their own and others' health and well-being.

These resources are designed to be used as a flexible teaching tool and the activities may be adapted for students' individual needs. There is a complementary DVD available upon request or on our You Tube page . The resources are packaged by theme and have been mapped to the Australian curriculum.
