We have received a number of complaints about people leaving their cars unattended in the 2 minute parking spots in Warncliffe Road. These spots should be used for a drop off or pick up so if you are planning to walk inside the

school grounds then you are encouraged to park elsewhere. There is a significant impact on traffic congestion and student safety around the school immediately before and after school times when cars are left for longer periods of

time.

Walking to and From School

Children’s health and wellbeing benefits from walking to and from school and it is important to discuss and reinforce road safety awareness in your child.

 

  • Always hold your child’s hand, whether you are crossing the road or walking to school.

  • Take special care where there’s a lot of traffic, narrow or non-existent footpaths, or things like parked cars and trucks, trees, hillcrests or crowded footpaths that block your view of the road. This is especially so when you are taking your child to school, as this is a time when there are many children and parents coming and going, and your child may be tempted to run off to join their friends.

 

  • Your child will learn by your example. Always cross roads at pedestrian crossings or corners, wait for the traffic or pedestrian lights, and cross the road when it is safe Explain what you are doing to your child so they can understand and learn how to safely cross a road.

    You may have learned to look right, look left, look right again when crossing the road and have passed this onto your child. In line with current road safety advice, VicRoads recommends Stop, Look, Listen, Think.

 

  • STOP one step back from the kerb or shoulder of the road if there is no footpath.

  • LOOK in all directions for approaching traffic.

  • LISTEN in all directions for approaching traffic.

  • THINK about whether it is safe to cross the road – when the road is clear or all traffic has stopped.

  • When crossing, walk straight across the road. Keep looking and listening for traffic while crossing.
