Safe driving

Creating a safe environment around schools requires a collaborative approach from everyone including parents, teachers, children and the broader community.

Speed, congestion and poor parking are all factors that can impact the safety of children. Often these poor behaviours arise from people within the school community itself, so it is important to remember that your behaviour is equally as important as the next person.

If you need to drive to school, please obey the road rules and be polite and respectful to other drivers. A little bit of patience and courtesy can go a long way to protecting the safety of children.
