About road safety

Road-related crashes are a leading cause of death and serious injury for children and young people in NSW.

To help address this health issue, road safety is taught in NSW schools as part of the Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE) key learning area. This learning area is mandatory for all students from Kindergarten to Year 10. The PDHPE K-10 syllabus focuses on developing students' attitudes and behaviours to help them become safe pedestrians, passengers, wheels users and future drivers.

The activities and resources in On the move aim to challenge students' thinking and actions as a road user to help reduce the number of young people killed and injured on our roads.
