Riding to school
Riding to school is permissible for students in Years 3 to 6. Parents should be confident that their child is capable of handling their bicycle or scooter on roads and that they are aware of the road rules. Students in Kindergarten to Year 2 are only permitted to ride to school if they are accompanied by an adult. Students riding to school:
must not ride their bike or scooter in the school grounds. Students need to walk with their bike or scooter until they are beyond the schools boundaries and are not likely to collide with pedestrians.
must wear an approved safety helmet.
should have a lock and chain to secure their bike or scooter.
must store their bike or scooter in the designated rack.
should use a roadworthy bike or scooter and obey the road rules. If students fail to observe these conditions, parents or carers will be contacted with a view to withdrawing the right to ride to and from school.
The school accepts no responsibility for the loss or theft of bikes, scooters or helmets.
