The Safety School Experience
The Constable Care Safety School is a best-practice excursion destination for children aged 4-11 years.
It includes a purpose-built classroom complex, and a realistic layout of Perth's streets that provides students with a hands-on opportunity to learn vital pedestrian, bike and public transport travel safety skills. Featuring cutting-edge augmented reality in a simulated-risk environment, the Constable Care Safety School provides an exciting excursion opportunity for primary schools that links directly to WA curriculum outcomes.

At the Constable Care Safety School children practice dealing with road and transport hazards in a safe and realistic urban environment. Based on the best-practice education principle of learning through play, students have the opportunity to apply the road safety knowledge they have been taught in the classroom within the fully functioning Safety School layout. This includes:
- working rail crossings
- pedestrian crossings
- a rail pedestrian maze
- a school zone
- functioning traffic lights that can sense approaching riders.
- Real roads, footpaths and bike paths, with scale buildings
- Even a bus stop and train station (with a full size train and bus!)
Students navigate the Safety School as both cyclists and pedestrians. Bikes and helmets are all supplied, and the pedestrian experience uses our iPad minis and a purpose-designed game-like augmented reality application to allow students to interact with and solve realistic road and transport hazards throughout the environment. This experiential learning technique ensures students are fully engaged with the learning activity and helps them retain key messages that are not just important but potentially life-saving.
