SCHOOL’S BACK NEXT WEEK SO LET’S KEEP OUR KIDS SAFE! … Please remember to watch out for children walking, scootering and cycling to school. Show your children the safest places to cross the road – remind them to look left and right for vehicles.

Motorists …need to remember to STOP if a school patrol sign is extended… regardless of which side of the road it is on, SLOW DOWN around schools and be prepared to stop at all school crossing points, KEEP plenty of SPACE between you and cars in front. And please remember, the speed limit in School Zones is 30 kms but with the excitement of first days please keep speeds well under the 30 km limit.
