Year 11 Ryda Program - Term 2

As you are well aware many Year 11 students will be working towards attaining their Driver’s Licence in the very near future. This can be a worrying time for parents and teachers, as students are often unaware of the dangers they face every day on the road.

As part of our Student Development Programme (SDP), we are pleased to offer all Year 11 students a Rotary Youth Driver Awareness (RYDA) program.  A fact sheet is available about this course on the RYDA website.

RYDA is a community-based initiative of Rotary Clubs and as a result, we are able to offer this program to our students at a greatly subsidised price.

  • Where - Sleeman Sport Cemplex, Chandler
