At RACQ we’re proud to support the education of Queensland students. We believe the more we can do now, the more they can thrive in the future.
As part of this commitment, we offer a range of school programs to help students develop financial and road safety. Plus, we’re always looking to celebrate the amazing teachers who do such an incredible job supporting students through the most important years of their lives.
Because RACQ is owned by members we do more for our community, and we look forward to continuing to support Queensland schools for years to come.
At RACQ, we believe it’s never too early to start learning how to be safe around roads. Our Streets Ahead program teaches primary school students from Prep to Year 6 important safety lessons, with four presentations covering passenger, pedestrian and bicycle safety. With fun demonstrations, interactive activities and discussions, it’s helping keep Queensland kids safe now, and into the future.
RACQ Docudrama is a program for Year 11 and 12 students that takes an interactive approach to road safety. Partnering with the Queensland Police Service, Queensland Ambulance Service and other local professionals, we create a powerful ‘mock crash’ scenario to demonstrate the real impact of road tragedy. From here students are empowered with strategies to avoid these dangers and combat the ‘Fatal 5’.
CashIQ is a financial literacy program designed to give Year 11 and 12 students the smarts they need to manage and grow their money. Fun and interactive, it provides simple tips on how to make good financial choices and explores how they can pay off in the long run.
This road safety awareness program for Year 10, 11 and 12 students is designed to help novice drivers survive and thrive. From how to rack up their 100 learner hours, to being a passenger and dealing with breakdowns, it covers all the key aspects of hitting the road and steers students in the right direction with practical tips and advice to get the most of their driving journey.
