Theo Byard, Year 10 Coordinator at Simmonds College with 2 students Emmy and Bruk {the boys have been doing work experience at the
Op Shop}, Mollie and Sophie Short {Molly has been volunteering at the Op Shop as part of her Duke of Edinburgh program}
The evening meeting this month allowed for 2 impressive presentations.  
Anton Hocky from RYDA spoke about the Rotary Youth Driver Awareness program, its history and impact on educating young people on road safety awareness prior to obtaining their Ps.  The approach and data collected was impressive and all of us took something away which was new to us. eg type of music one listens to impacts awareness!
Emma Phillips from Moonee Valley Council spoke at the L2P program and how it is helping young people in Moonee Valley complete the necessary 120 hours of supervised driving.  With just 1 car, the challenge has been fitting in the number of prospective drivers and mentors with the hours available.
Rotary Flemington Kensington has sponsored another car for the program and this will be officially launched on Friday 22nd at Queens Park during the Youth Festival.
This follows on from our club's previous work with RoadStart in 2013 which was then taken over by council to become  DriveLink.
