Gympie Historic Auto Club supporting driver safety

Gympie Historic Auto Club President Mr Rob White with James Nash State High School Principal Jackson Dodd

​Students at James Nash State High School were recently treated to a visit from some of the Gympie Historic Auto Club's finest vintage automobiles.

Over the past 10 years, Gympie Historic Auto Club has donated more than $50,000 to high schools in the Gympie district for student driver education.

Club president Rob White said the occasion was an opportunity to display the club's much-loved cars, as well as promote the importance of driver safety for young people.

"We like to show off our pride and joy, but the more serious aspect is that our club has been supporting local driver education in Gympie for about 10 years now," he said.

James Nash State High School Principal, Jackson Dodd, said the program was especially important for Year 12 students gaining their licences this year.

"Most of our students in Year 12 are on their P-plates so it's critical that they have the opportunity to not just learn how to drive but to drive safely. We provide time within our school program for students to get professional training, and this funding aids those activities," he said.
