Safe To School
About the project
In 2020, Central Grampians Local Learning and Employment Network (Central Grampians LLEN) successfully applied for funding through the VicRoads Community Road Safety Grant 2020/2021 Safe to School program.
The funding is designed to help address issues of safety around pick up and drop off times, create safe routes to school and encourage active transport to and from school. Most importantly, it acknowledges that road safety is a shared responsibility of the whole community.
Ararat West, St Mary’s and Ararat 800 primary schools were engaged to participate in the project. This involved developing a resource that could be used across all primary schools in the region and shared with the wider community, to promote safe travel to school. Messages for the resource were informed by students’ experiences of travelling to school, teacher input and a workshop delivered by Victoria Police at each of the schools involved.
