Students cycling to and from school

It has come to the school's attention that some students cycling to school are not following road rules and not wearing helmets, putting them at risk of serious injury. If your child currently cycles to school or you are considering this, please note the following:

  • Parents or carers are responsible for their children travelling to and from school. This includes all forms of travel to get to school.
  • Children under the age of 12 may ride on footpaths, as can a supervising adult. They are required to give way to pedestrians and to wheel their bicycles over pedestrian and children’s crossings.
  • Road safety authorities recommend that children under the age of 9 are supervised by an adult when riding on the road. Depending on their cycling skills and experience, some children over this age may still require supervision.
As a general rule, the school encourages all students prep-grade 3 if riding to school to be accompanied by an adult. 

Grade 3 and 4 students will participate in Bike Education as part of their PE program this year. 

The school provides a bike shed for bicycle storage.
