It might only be make-up and special effects but St Luke's Anglican School students this week showed some of the very real consequences of dangerous driving.
The images of Year 11 and 12 students were derived from a mock crash demonstration for road safety training.
Head of Senior School Robyn Deer said said the training was part of an RACQ docudrama.
“The docudrama takes a community approach to road safety issues involving emergency service workers and other local professionals to help demonstrate a powerful mock crash road safety scenario,” she said.
“The students then explored real-world strategies for combating the ‘fatal five' road safety issues.”
The Fatal Five are:
- Drink and drug driving
- Not wearing a seat belt
- Medication and driving
- Speeding and distraction.
Ms Deer said the training was an opportunity for students to learn the real-life consequences of dangerous driving.
“The Bundaberg Region has suffered a number of tragic deaths on the road recently,” she said.
“We want to equip our students with all the knowledge we can to help keep them safe and well.
“Thanks to RACQ and the local emergency services for working with our students to help keep them safe.”
