Rotary Youth Driver Awareness (RYDA)
RYDA is a program managed by Road Safety Education to create awareness of the dangers of driving and issues that students need to aware of when they obtain their "L" and "P" licences http://www.rse.org.au/programs/ryda/.
Bega Rotary has coordinated the program for 11 years. The program locally is run over 3 days for students in year 11 at schools across the Bega Valley and Monaro . There are usually 2 to 3 schools participating each day with 460 students completing the program this year. The venue is the Frogs Hollow Go Kart Track south of Bega.
This year we were fortunate to receive financial assistance from the IMB Foundation.
Schools that that participated this year were Bega High, Eden Marine High, Bombala High, Lumen Christi Catholic College, South Coast Anglican College, Monaro High, Jindabyne Central and Mallacoota P12 College.
