  • explore the drug and road safety content appropriate for Year 3 to 6 students such as caffeine (energy drinks), tobacco (passive smoking), alcohol, crossing roads, wearing a restraint in the car and using public transport

  • 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.
