School Roads Safety Program
The Wheelchair Sports NSW School Roads Safety and Wheelchair Basketball Program visits over 250 schools in NSW and participates in various community programs throughout the year including The Youth & Road Trauma Forum at Allphones Arena each year. We would like to bring this program to YOUR school in 2017!
How does a Roadshow work?
What? 20 minute talk on road safety by 2 members who have experienced the consequences of taking risks on the road, followed by a 40 minute game of wheelchair basketball (chairs provided by us) played by the students. This provides the students a chance to experience something new, as well as give them an idea of what it is like to be in a wheelchair, as well as expanding their view of what people with a disability can do.
Where? We’ll come to you! Just make sure you have access to a basketball court, multipurpose area, or quadrangle.
When? Booking is subject to availability. The further ahead you book, the better the chance that you will get what you want.
Session Size? We recommend maximum class size for each session is 30 students. This is to ensure all students have a turn of playing wheelchair basketball as we bring 12 basketball wheelchairs with us on the day.
If you have more than 30 students per session, please call to discuss other options for your school such as the road safety talk done in the morning to all students then each session can be dedicated to wheelchair basketball.
Total Session Time? Minimum booking to attend a school is 2 hours and we are happy to work in with your school timetable for session times.
Teacher supervision is compulsory at all times during the Roadshow.
Cost? A price list is detailed in the information sheet below or contact Mel Jones on +61 2 9809 5260 or email email@example.com for more information.
What students and teachers have had to say…
“Excellent presentation. Positive safety message and enjoyable, practical skills”
“It was a real eye opener as they told of many life experiences and facts to make you think twice in dangerous situations”
“Even the students who expected the same old road safety talk told me how much they enjoyed the presentation and, of course, the wheelchair basketball.”
