Indigenous children in the Macarthur region will soon learn road safety using a new workbook, The road, my mob and me, which was launched at the Campbelltown Bicycle and Road Safety Education Centre in February.
The free road safety workbook was created by Playful Beginnings Aboriginal Corporation with a $2500 grant from the National Roads and Motorists' Association (NRMA) Motoring & Services and includes the puppet characters, Ivan and Annie, the Bunganditj Kids.
The book conveys key road messages for pedestrians and passengers in a culturally appropriate way and is designed for young children to use with their families.
The road, my mob and me will be distributed to members of the Gandangara Local Land Council and to Indigenous playgroups in south west Sydney.
Playful Beginnings Aboriginal Corporation creates training programs and workshops that recognise the importance of developing and maintaining a strong cultural identity beginning in the early years.
