Chance Takers Are Accident Makers

September 18, 2017 at 8:32 am

This term, the Year 11 and 12 Business class studied an event management unit that consisted of planning, organising and executing an event. Our Year 11 BCT cohort united to create an engaging and educational, two-part event for the entire school community. The event theme: Chance Takers are Accident Makers was developed as our event, focused on being safe within the community.
Tuesday the 22 August saw the commencement of our middle school and senior students event. ‘Think Before You Drink’ was aimed to create awareness of alcohol misuse and abuse through the simulation of Fatal Vision goggles. Vision impairment goggles simulate physical and cognitive impairments, including slowed reaction time, reduced peripheral vision and loss of balance. Students and teachers were educated on the potential dangers and effects of alcohol impairment as participants realised how even simple everyday tasks – under the influence of alcohol could provide potentially dangerous consequences. With a small fee of $2, students completed a series of activities such as walking along a straight line, catching and throwing games and 10 pin bowling, all whilst wearing the goggles. These activities created an engaging, hands on demonstration for all ages, building awareness and prevention of alcohol misuse.
To engage the Primary students, a separate activity was held on Wednesday the 23 August. The focus for our second event was ‘Be Aware and Take Care’. Younger students learnt of the dangers of roadways and safety when out on the street. Our team of Year 11 BCT students demonstrated and conducted interactive games, colouring in competitions and the favoured Red Light Green Light game.
All proceeds from our events are being donated to our chosen charity – the Jason Rich Foundation, to help continue their campaign of educating students in defensive driving. Our event saw a profit of $212.45 to be donated.
A special mention to Lynda McLuskie who has been our link between the foundation and the school. Linda spoke on Assembly to help promote our event and create awareness among students. She spoke of the Jason Rich Foundation and what they do for the community and youths.
Finally, I would like to extend our appreciation and thanks to Brian from LLP Driver Training. Brian kindly lent us the Fatal Vision goggles and equipment needed for our event. Without his generosity and support, our event could not go ahead.
