National Road Safety Week

From 15 to 22 November, it is National Road Safety Week - a time to remind our students how to be safe on and around roads. It is so important to teach our students how to travel safety to and from school each day, but we need your help. Please encourage your child to practice safe behaviours around roads. Our School Crossing Supervisors have some great tips to share on road safety with your children:

  • Always STOP, LOOK, LISTEN and THINK before crossing a road
  • Listen to the school crossing supervisor
  • Only cross the street on the green ‘walk’ traffic sign or at a pedestrian crossing
  • Explain traffic signs and signals with your child

We also encourage you to get involved in committing to road safety by:

  • Drive slow around schools and obey the 40km/h speed limit
  • Look out for children and school crossing supervisors entering the road
  • ​Make sure all of your passengers are wearing a seatbelt.

The safety of our students is our highest priority and together we can make road safety top of mind.
