In S1-S3 we introduce all the Physics of Mechanics and Dynamics through a Road Safety theme. We teach speed, velocity, distance, displacement, stopping, braking and thinking distances through a game called Chicken Run where students have to predict the stopping distances of a car under various conditions and speeds. In S3 students use the knowledge they've gained to complete a simulated Road Crash that was put together by Police Scotland (Dumfries and Galloway).

Don't risk it on the roads is a road safety campaign set up by the student council after one of our students was hit by a motorbike whilst crossing the road by our school. His injuries were so serious he was air lifted to a London hospital for specialist treatment. The student council immediately decided it was time to campaign to the local council and point out the dangers faced by all who used the road on a daily basis. They were committed to making the roads in their local area safer for all who used them.
