Farm Vehicle Safety Course

Well done to Jono, Charlie, Cameron and Matt on their efforts and attitudes throughout the excursion.

On 16 and 17 November, four Year 11 Primary Industries students attended a Farm Vehicle Safety Course at the Dubbo TAFE.  The aim of the course was for students to learn the latest safe operation of both 2-wheeler and 4-wheeler motorbikes. This required the students to get hands-on experience with riding these motorbikes under the watchful eye of their instructor Tom Toule.  They received a helmet and leather gloves as part of the course. Despite the students actually having all had quite some experience in riding motorbikes, all of them learnt extra skills over the two days about how shifting their weight around corners and up and down slopes, improves the stability and safety of the bikes. The weather was hot and windy but this did not deter the students who completed these competencies successfully, both practically and with a written knowledge test.

The students were exceptionally behaved over the two days with the instructor impressed with their level of maturity and their determination to demonstrate the new-found riding styles. Tom commented that this group was one of the best he had seen for a while, and that they all had the employability skills that he was looking for in an employee.
