For the last nineteen years, Westmead Hospital has held bstreetsmart (previously the Youth and Road Trauma Forum.) This injury prevention program is open to students in years 10 to 12 in all government and non-government high schools in NSW and the ACT. The Forum is held at the Qudos Bank Arena (previously Allphones Arena), Olympic Boulevard, Sydney Olympic Park. More than 247,000 students from 435 schools have attended over the 19 years. Evaluations of both students and teachers have received the event very positively with many schools attending consecutive years. There is also significant interest and support from the media.

The forum provides students who are most at risk; a realistic look at the trauma caused by road crashes and provides them with information and strategies in an attempt to reduce serious injuries and deaths. The forum’s contents and structure aim to treat young people as adults allowing them freedom to choose from a range of interactive exhibits.

The day will include an exciting combination of demonstrations, crash dynamics and rescue, vehicle stopping distances and active exhibits. The forum will include displays relating to youth trauma and safety.

The aim is to help young people make decisions that reduce their risk of being in a crash.

Please complete the survey after the event to assist us in planning for 2025.
