Safe Drive Stay Alive
10th November 2011
On Thursday 10 November 45 year twelve students headed to the Ridgeway Centre, Wolverton Mill, to watch a ‘Safe Drive Stay Alive’ campaign which is aimed at 16 to 18 year olds in the Thames Valley area. They were joined by Year 12 students from other schools in the Milton Keynes area.
'Safe Drive Stay Alive' is an innovative theatre education project, exploring the circumstances and consequences of a road traffic collision. Part of the show contains a film of a crash in the local area which has been specially prepared, with roads and hospitals familiar to local students.
As the drama of the car crash unfolds, the members of the emergency services from the clip arrive on the stage and speak to the audience about their experiences including those who have suffered in a crash themselves or lost family to one.
Some quotes from students who attended :
Haneed Ahmed “It was really good, it influenced me in a positive way”
Sharn Edwards-Baxendale “It was really good how we got to see real life stories and how it affected people after the accident”
Zoe Guymer “It was shocking and eye opening, it made me think twice about little things I take for granted”
