The Hume Valley Traffic Safety Education (TSE) program is for Junior students at the Koroit Avenue campus. This program involves physical fitness with an emphasis on observing road rules, safe riding practices, pedestrian and passenger safety, in addition to the development of cycling skills, both on-road and off-road.
Our Traffic Safety Facility is designed to replicate a range of streetscapes, where students are required to demonstrate safe riding-in-traffic skills, within the school grounds.
Traffic Safety Education is a component of the national Health and Physical Education area of the curriculum. Traffic Safety themes are integrated into other Key Learning Areas such as Personal and Social Development, Mathematics, Humanities, Science and Technology.
