Students get creative to promote seat belt safety

During term three, eight rural primary schools in and around the Shire of Esperance were invited to participate in the Esperance RoadWise ‘Design Your Own Seat Belt’ project.

Each student was provided with a blank seat belt sash and asked to decorate it with a design of their choice.

Schools were also asked to provide examples of seat belt slogans and persuasive text the students had produced to promote the use of seat belts.

The objectives of the project were to:

  • Educate children on the importance of wearing seat belts and develop positive attitudes towards restraints.
  • Encourage students to influence their parents' driving behaviour.
  • Engage the community in a seat belt awareness campaign.

The project was incorporated into a display at the Esperance Agricultural Show, with members of the community invited to vote for their favourite school display.

This project was supported by a Government of Western Australia's Road Safety Community Grant.
