Road Safety around the School

Road Safety around the School

We are regularly seeing unsafe incidents and practices around our school both by parents and students.

Roads and vehicles are an everyday part of life for all of us. Either as a driver, a passenger, or as a pedestrian, we all must negotiate the road traffic environment on a daily basis.

Children are especially vulnerable around vehicles and roads due to their size and capabilities.

Be aware of the opportunities to teach children to become safer road-users.

  • When walking with your children make sure you are using the school or pedestrian crossings rather than taking potentially unsafe shortcuts.
  • Talk about the importance of wearing seat belts and insist that everyone in the vehicle wears appropriate restraints for their age and size.
  • Point out rules of the road when driving.

Always demonstrate responsible and safe behaviours when driving, as a passenger or while walking anywhere around vehicles and roads.
Remember children learn good habits from good role models.

Brimbank Council is very strict in enforcing parking restrictions around the school, including parking on nature strips. Please observe all parking signs when you park around the school. The current parking fines are the cost of your child’s school fees for one year.

Please be aware that the disabled car park at the front of the school in Carmody Drive is not a drop off point for able bodied people. It has been brought to our attention that parents are using this car park as a regular car park and leaving their car there whilst they take their children into school. Please leave the disabled car space open for those who are genuinely displaying a disabled car park sticker.
