Safety

Bicycles
The school supports the Land Transport recommendation that only students 10 years and over have the road sense and judgement to be able to bike on their own on public roads.
Children are not to ride bicycles in the school grounds and must park their bikes in the stands.


Bus safety
For the safety of our children please adhere to the following procedures when dropping off and picking up children from school buses:
In the morning please ensure that you are waiting/parking on the same side that the bus will stop to collect your child.
In the afternoon please ensure that there is an adult waiting to collect your child at the bus stop if the stop is not a driveway.

Parking
A "drop off" zone operates within the school grounds before school. It can get very busy so we expect parents to drop their children off and move off promptly. The "drop off" zone does not operate at the end of the day as that area is just too busy. 

 There are yellow lines along  Chalmers Place for very good reasons.  The mixture of cars, bikes and pedestrians puts children's safety at risk and there have been a number of reports of "near misses"  because of people parking in this area.  NO PARKING OR DROPPING OFF IN CHALMERS PLACE. 

Road Patrol
The road crossing on Centennial Avenue is manned before school each day from 8:30 to 9:00 and after school from 3 to 3:10. An adult supervises the crossing and children assist as road wardens in the afternoon.

Staying at school
Once students arrive at school they are not permitted to leave the school grounds unless they have a note signed by a parent or guardian.
