Students complete their own Safe Journeys Program Student Road Map, collecting virtual stamps along the way to record and recognise their learning.

The Safe Journeys Program offers 10 lesson activities that can be adapted to fit your teaching schedule. NB. If you are intending to undertake the Road to Zero excursion, it is a prerequisite to complete activities 1 – 3 beforehand to optimise students’ understanding and learning outcomes.

Activities 1-3 (at school)

Activities 1-3 are undertaken at school with a class teacher. The intention is for students to:

  • gain an understanding of the resources and transport options available to them.
  • develop road safety knowledge and journey planning skills.

Activities 4–5 (Road to Zero at Melbourne Museum)

A highlight of the Safe Journeys Program is the free excursion to the world-first Road to Zero Education Complex, developed by the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) in partnership with Melbourne Museum.

Activities 4 and 5 are led by a trained facilitator, who will guide students through hands-on learning experiences. Students will:

  • develop road safety knowledge
  • deepen their understanding of the Safe System concepts of Safe Roads, Safe Speeds, Safe Vehicles and Safe People.

Activities 6–10

Activities 6–10 are follow-up lessons to complete at school with the class teacher to reinforce student learning and encourage ‘next step’ action based on the understanding gained. Students will:

  • demonstrate the ability to independently plan safe trips using the road/transport network
  • reflect on their understanding of road safety and make a commitment to playing their part in stopping people being hurt or dying on our roads.
