SAFETY ISSUES

Parents, can you please be vigilant about walking safely to and from our school grounds. We need to use the crossings and paths for safe movement to and from school. We have many children at our school and we are about to start the building process and we really need to be SAFE at all times. Please model the correct behaviour for our children.

NEW: SCOOTERS AND SKATEBOARDS- are not allowed to be used to and from school. It is a new directive in our Diocese. If your child is riding to school they will also need a permission note and the bike needs to be road worthy as well. I will be giving out more information about this issue over the coming week.

Disable Parking

Please DO NOT park in our designated “Disable Parking Spaces” if you do not have a RTA sticker.
