On Monday 9th October, 20 Year 11 students attended the WISEDRIVE event in Newton Aycliffe. Students attended a carousel of workshops and activities, delivered by staff from Durham Constabulary, The North East Ambulance Service and other professionals in charge of driver safety. Students participated in First Aid demonstrations and were given some very emotive information about road traffic accidents caused by excess drinking in the age category of 17-25.
Each student also engaged in a driver simulator activity, which tested their concentration levels to the max! Staff commented on the maturity of the students and the students themselves enjoyed the day, taking away some essential advice on road safety, helping them to become more aware when they start to learn to drive.
