Our school was fortunate enough to view the bstreetsmart road safety

event at Allphones arena this week. I would like to sincerely thank the

volunteers, organisers and sponsors of this event for an outstanding

presentation. The big message  that our students received from this forum

is the power of the passengers in influencing the driver to slow down

and behave responsibly. It pulls no punches and it was a powerful

experience and I encourage all principals to explore sending students

from their school to next years event. Thanks once again to all

involved.

 



I will remember the outcomes of stupid choices.



Extremely powerful and emotion provoking. I think every teenager needs to witness something like that.



Interactive Displays Information

For the last eleven years, Westmead Hospital has held bstreetsmart (previously The Youth and Road Trauma Forum). This injury prevention program is open to students in years 10 to 12 in all government and non-government high schools in NSW and the ACT. The Forum is held at the Qudos Bank Arena ( previously Allphones Arena), Olympic Boulevard, Sydney Olympic Park. More than 142,000 students from 378 schools have attended over the 11 years. Evaluations of both students and teachers have received the event very positively with many schools attending consecutive years. There was also significant interest and support from the media.

The dates for 2017 are the 15 - 17 August 2017


The forum was held because our youth are being severely injured and killed due to  potentially preventable road crashes. The NSW statistics for 2014 for 17-25 year olds, recorded 15181 road traffic crashes of which 67 were fatalities and 4,742 were injured. These young people hold only 14% of licenses, but they are involved in 21% of fatal crashes. Westmead Hospital Trauma Nurses are committed to decreasing these numbers.


The forum provided students who are most at risk, a realistic look at the trauma caused by road crashes and provided them information and strategies in an attempt to reduce serious injuries and deaths. The forum's contents and structure is aimed to treat young people as adults allowing them freedom to choose from a range of interactive exhibits.


2016 saw  over 19,500 students from 178 schools attend over the  three days.


 Please confirm your commitment as soon as possible.


If you are a  new Interactive Display Holder – welcome, or as a past participant, we hope that you will be able to assist us in making this and future forums  as interesting and informative for the students.


Parking will again be subsidised and will be free to all interactive display holders. Please take your ticket to the external cloakroom where you get your wristband and we will give you a subsided ticket in exchange. 

For Nursing staff who are volunteering  or manning an interactive display at bstreetsmart - this event equates to 4 CPD hours per day as per The College of Nursing.
