This is effectively achieved through primary and secondary students attending a morning meeting with the College principal Mr Ayman Alwan.

Year Six Bike Safety Centre Visit

What a fantastic day!!! Year Six had a fabulous day learning about bike helmet and pedestrian safety at the Campbelltown Bike Safety Centre. The day was full of excitement as students rode their bikes around a designated track and had an opportunity to hold a license whilst they followed the road rules. Part of the program was to educated students about hazards and risks on the road and how rules can affect their everyday lives. Students also got an opportunity to ride during a 'Double Demerits' blitz as both teachers and parents ensured they were riding their bikes according to the rules. We would like to give a special thanks to Mr. Kanj for helping out on the day. Grade Six Teachers
