Spots are still available for children aged nine to 12 in a free road safety program being offered by SA Police during the July school holidays.
The school holiday program was offered for the first time earlier this year at the Road Safety Centre and proved very popular with more than 90 spots filling quickly.
In the July sessions, first advertised earlier this week, the classes for children aged five to eight have been fully booked, but there are still spots available for older children on 12 July and 18 July.
While traditionally South Australian children have the opportunity to visit the centre as part of a school excursion, not all schools participate in this program.
So in order to provide an additional opportunity for children to gain vital road safety education, Police are running the free holiday program.
Participants in the two-hour program will have a classroom session, followed by a practical session of bicycle riding on the mock roadway to put into practice their new knowledge.
All equipment is supplied and the Road Safety Centre have a range of bicycles to cater for all riders.
Four sessions, covering two age groups, are being offered at Thebarton Police Barracks, Port Road, Thebarton from 10am to noon:
Tuesday, 10 July for children 5 – 8 years FULL
* Thursday, 12 July for children 9 – 12 years
Tuesday, 17 July for children 5 – 8 years FULL
* Wednesday, 18 July for children 9 -12 years
To make a booking please contact the Road Safety Section by calling 8207 6585.
