Hero Galmatic - High School Car Maintenance Incursions

High School Car Maintenance Incursions

Galmatic has 14 years experience in teaching car maintenance school incursions to over 100,000 teenagers a year and we have identified that most teenagers have not been shown basic car know-how by their parents or driving instructors.

Our High School Car Maintenance Life Skills Program fills this gap.

“We have been using Galmatic for several years now to empower our girls to feel confident in looking after their cars, in particular changing a tyre. Eleni and Chantal’s enthusiasm is very engaging”

-Kath Crawford, TARA

Hands-on & Interactive

Students are immersed in practical skills from the get-go.

We dive in and get them under the bonnet checking the oil, coolant, fluids and battery and then on the ground changing a tyre in an intensive, interactive hands-on workshop.

We focus on teaching students to be comfortable with exploring and questioning.

 

Road safety begins with education and training. This engaging educational workshop, creates an environment for students to thrive.

Engaging & Relatable

Armed with some easy and basic Life Skills, we help them on their journey to become safer drivers, informed and empowered road users and help in striving towards the nation’s goal of a zero-road toll.

The workshop is designed around what we call the ’10-minute servo check’, which is a monthly car check to ensure their car is running at its best, doesn’t break down and keeps them driving safely.

 

Skills Covered

Under the Bonnet

• What, when and how to check the engine to keep it running smoothly and safely

• What they can and can’t touch in the engine bay

• Students check the oil and coolant, fluids, battery and hoses

Tyre Care

“Mel our trainer was great! She provided exactly the sort of information they needed to look after their cars without it being overwhelming.”

We cater to your Timetable

Workshops are taught in sessions.

Each session runs for either one or two periods, depending on your timetable.

We can run a small workshop with just one trainer and a handful of students,

up to large groups with several trainers teaching simultaneous and consecutive sessions.

We will cater to your school and your student numbers and requirements.

“This was the first time that we had booked Galmatic workshops for our Year 10 students – and the girls loved it!! It was such a valuable experience and the girls were so enthusiastic and engaged to learn how to change a tyre, check under the bonnet etc. Eleni was fantastic and engaged with the girls to encourage and empower them to have the skills to get themselves out of trouble when driving. Highly recommend it!!”

Parent Information Pack

We also provide an information for parents (many of which don’t know how to change a tyre)!

It gives parents tips on how to keep their teenagers engaged with their driving and help create confident drivers behind the wheel.

“We had the Galmatic Car Maintenance workshop at our school during the final week of term 3. All year 11 students participated in the workshop. The workshop was interesting and interactive and gave the girls a really thorough insight into car maintenance and changing of a tyre. The workshop was really beneficial for our students as the instructors were engaging and being female they were really able to connect with the students and show that girls can maintain and care for their own cars! I could not recommend this workshop enough!”

“Galmatic was an extremely relevant workshop it gave students relevance and builds on confidence in an area that they would normally not know anything. Great role models.”

Fruenqently Asked Questions

Q: Do you only teach single sex classes?

A: We teach single sex and co-ed classes. We are happy to divide students into mixed or single sexed groups depending on your preference.

Q: What area do you need to teach the workshop?

A: We need a flat area to park the vehicle/s, with enough space for students to be able to look around – usually the staff car park or designated parking area is great.

Q: Do we need to provide anything for the workshop?

A: Other than the designated parking area, you don’t need any other materials. We bring the car/s, oil, coolant and rags.

Q: Do you need much set up/pack up time before and after the workshop? 

A: Not at all. We drive in, park and can be set up in a number of minutes.

Q: We have large forms of 300+ students. Can you still accommodate our school?

A: Yes. There are a number of different formats that we can run our workshops. We can have several trainers running simultaneous and consecutive workshops. We will work with you to put together a program to suit your timetable and number of students.

Q: We only have a handful of students, is that too small?

A: We teach at many schools with small classes. We do these with one car and one trainer and the students really love the extra attention and time with the trainer.

“No-one in the class was standing in the back of the workshop bored. Eleni involved everyone in the workshop! She used humour and stories to make the class fun and the hands-on element was the best!”
