RACV Safety Squad

RACV Safety Squad is a free safety program tailored for Victorian primary school students from foundation to grade six. Schools can book a visit by an RACV educator to conduct a program that aims to empower students to stay safe both at home and on the roads. Themes covered include passenger safety, pedestrian safety, bike safety and identifying hazards in the home.

As part of the program, your school will receive free resources that provide links from the Victorian curriculum and a range of integrated teaching ideas and activities.

Each school is able to book one day per year with up to six sessions delivered per school visit.

Each session lasts 45 minutes and caters to a maximum of 30 students per session.

Do you want to give your students a real life learning opportunity? 

RACV Social Media project is open to Year 9–12 secondary school students to learn new communication skills and be creative contributors in a road safety campaign.
