Safer Kids: Challenges and Choices (K-6)

The workshop supports school staff working with Kindergarten to Year 6 students and provides participants with the opportunity to:

  • unpack the Challenges and Choices teaching resources that link to the Western Australian Curriculum

  • explore the drug and road safety content appropriate for Kindergarten to Year 2 students such as caffeine (energy drinks), tobacco (passive smoking), crossing roads, wearing a restraint in the car and a helmet when riding a bike or scooter and, in addition for Year 3 to 6, alcohol and cannabis

  • clarify the 'real picture' of student drug use supported by current statistics from the Australian Secondary Students Alcohol and Drug Survey and road injury statistics for this age group

  • observe teaching strategies that can be transferred easily into the classroom 

  • commence planning a teaching program using activities from the Challenges and Choices resource.

There is no cost for the workshop.  Morning tea and lunch are provided and a certificate of participation will be issued on completion.

Participation expectations

Participants should have an understanding of the Western Australian Curriculum and Assessment Outline.
