School Excursions

Children explore real-life transport risks and practice road, pedestrian, bike and public transport safety skills in a safe, realistic urban environment.

Overview

Children explore real-life transport risks and practice road, pedestrian, bike and public transport safety skills in a safe, realistic urban environment.

We have one of WA’s most exciting outdoor excursion destinations for primary schools.

The Safety School teaches vital skills to keep children aged 4 – 12 years safe on the roads. Sadly, road trauma remains a leading cause of death and serious injury in WA children.

Our unique centre is the only one of its kind in WA and offers a fun, hands-on learning experience linked to the WA curriculum.

  • Scale buildings, bus stop and train station;
  • Working rail platform and pedestrian crossings;
  • Functioning traffic lights;
  • School zones including ‘kiss and drive’ zone; and
  • Intersections and a roundabout.

Students learn how to negotiate hazards they may encounter in real life as pedestrians and cyclists and learn to make safer choices.

Mini iPads loaded with our innovative augmented reality (AR) app allow children to interact with engaging AR characters to solve realistic transport dangers.

  • water bottle
  • sun protective hat
  • sunscreen
  • enclosed shoes
  • clothes suitable for riding bikes
  • wear weather appropriate clothing
  • long hair tied low to allow for helmets to be worn
  • a snack if desired

All equipment including bikes, helmets and iPads are provided.

Please note: the Constable Care Safety School is an outdoor environment with no cafe facilities.

Bus stops are located on Guildford Rd just 30 metres from the Safety School entrance. Take Transperth bus routes 41, 48 and 55.

The car park is accessible from Peninsula Road (see map below). Please be cautious as this carpark is in the vicinity of a vacation care centre and there may be children around.
