Mandurah Primary School
Mandurah Forum and Mandurah Primary School working together to protect our communities most valuable asset, our children.
The ‘Being Seen, Being Safe’ road safety initiative is a Western Australian safety project designed to influence positive road safety behaviour and raise awareness of speed around schools to protect our community’s most valuable asset, our children.
The project was devised by Peel Crime Prevention Unit Acting Sergeant Tam McKeown, following a tragic road death of a boy by a heavy haulage vehicle.
In December 2014, Mandurah Forum raised funds through the Centre's charity money spinner to purchase the “Being Seen, Being Safe’ vests for every child. The children will wear these vests to and from school, which will increase their safety.
Over 10, 000 children have already participated in the project in rural WA, with Mandurah Primary School being the second in the metropolitan region to participate.
0n 20 February, the children performed on stage following a parade through the mall to raise awareness. The students were joined by SDERA consultant, Tania Gigg, Izzy the Lizard and Senior Constable, Tam Mckeown.
