13 Dec Dying 2 Drive Workshop
At the tail end of September, the Year 11 students visited Bromsgrove Fire Station for a “Dying 2 Drive” workshop. The session began with the reconstruction of a fatal road traffic collision involving all of the blue light services, their response and the ripple effect of such a collision.
The reconstruction was followed by multiple, powerful interactive workshops run by the fire, police and ambulance services. During these workshops the consequences of bad decisions such as: not wearing seatbelts, use of mobile phones whilst driving and other such distractions were delivered to raise the awareness of road safety. Students were also shown how to perform live saving CPR.
Through this powerful series of road safety workshops, our soon-to-be young drivers were educated with the vital skills and knowledge that will help keep them safe on the road, whether they are passengers or drivers themselves. A hard-hitting and informative afternoon for the Year 11s’ that I hope they reflect upon in years to come.
