Driver Education Program

Home Hill SHS year 12 students at the Driver Awareness Program

A valuable addition to the year 12 valedictory week program this year was the Driver Education Program. This program was generously sponsored by the Home Hill Bendigo Community Bank who organised the day and covered the significant cost of $5885. This was an important educational opportunity for our students, most of whom have just received their drivers licence.

The year 12s had to rise early to catch the bus at 6.45am ready for an 8.15am start at 1300 Smiles Stadium. The team consisted of a driver training school from Charters Towers, the Ambulance Service plus the head police driving instructor who trains police cadets.

The program was aimed at educating young drivers in everything from what to do in an accident to how to change a tyre safely and how speed determines braking distances.

Overall the day was extremely successful and well received by the students, especially the interactive aspect of the program. The school would like to take this opportunity to thank the Home Hill Bendigo Community Bank for their generous donation and we look forward to continuing the program in 2014.
