The Streets Ahead Program

The Streets Ahead program is free to all Queensland primary schools and includes age-appropriate lessons on passenger, pedestrian and bicycle safety.

Our Education Officers are qualified teachers who will enthuse and educate your students through a variety of teaching methods including demonstrations, interactive activities and meaningful discussions.

Our specially designed road mat gives Prep to year 2 the ability to learn correct road safety behaviours and practice crossing the road safely. For Years 3 - 6 students, our Education Officers will demonstrate the importance of responsible behaviours and safety equipment, like helmets and seatbelts, through engaging lessons.

Our Education Officers can also help teachers incorporate road safety education into their classrooms by providing activities for teachers to complement our programs. All Streets Ahead programs feature content appropriate for students from Prep to Year 6.
