Our Year 11 students recently attended the Prevent Alcohol and Risk-related Trauma in Youth (P.A.R.T.Y.) program at the Geelong Convention Centre. This dynamic and interactive injury awareness and prevention program used vivid clinical reality to demonstrate the consequences that can occur when engaging in risk-taking behaviour. Students learned how to recognise potential injury-producing situations, make prevention-oriented choices, and adopt behaviours that minimise unnecessary risk. Our students engaged with organisations and individuals including emergency services professionals, doctors, nurses, allied health practitioners, and people who have experienced trauma and survived – often with significant disabilities. This provided valuable insight into the many consequences that patients, families and health professionals are faced with as a result of risk-related trauma. This program is an important element of our Health and Wellbeing program and relates to various areas of study in Psychology, and Health and Human Development.
