Getting to school safely
Student safety is our priority. We encourage the whole community to be safe travellers on their way to and from school
As a parent or carer, you are responsible for how your child gets to and from school. Where possible, we encourage walking.
Plan ahead by discussing the following with your children:
safe travel routes
how to share the road safely
alternative arrangements for when unexpected things happen.
For more information about safe travel to and from school, visit:
The School Drive Subsidy may help towards the costs of driving children to school if you live in an area where there is no public transport.
