Stay Safe Stay Alive

 ‘Safe Drive Stay Alive is a road safety initiative that aims to empower young drivers to make safe driving choices. There is evidence to suggest that young people aged between 16 and 25 years of age are more likely to die or suffer serious injury from a road traffic collision. Safe Drive Stay Alive uses hard hitting performances to inform young people of the dangers and catastrophic effects of poor driving choices. True stories will be told by existing emergency service staff and family members who have been directly affected by the tragedy caused by serious road traffic collisions’.

In Greater Manchester the combined emergency services get together each year to run the courses for students from across the 11 boroughs.

Our students went to Middleton Arena for the event.

Bethany thought the morning ‘was really good!’.‘The sad thing’ she added was ‘the stories they told us were all true. One of them happened in Rochdale and I grew up with one of the girls killed’.

There was certainly lots for our Year 12’s the think about as many of them start to learn to drive and face the challenges of todays’ world.
