“Thank you so much for this work. Friday’s incident is a testament to the importance of what we developed together. Thank you so much to GHO.”Troy Griffith, Principal Manager, Executive Coordination, Transport for NSW

The campaign will feature a set of animated eBooks for the younger years and videos for the teenagers. These tools will be used to help teachers improve tram awareness and provide potentially “life saving lessons” prior to the trams becoming operational.

“We just want those kids at those schools to be really aware about how to be safe around trams.” – Marg Prendergast, Coordinator General, Transport Coordination, Transport for NSW

“The campaign will roll out at the start of term four giving teachers a couple of months to get the message across, before trams start operating in early December.”Liz Daniels, State Politics Reporter, 9 News
