Bicycle and scooter safety

Riding a bicycle or scooter on the roadway in conjunction with larger, much faster conveyances such as cars and trucks requires a high degree of skill, knowledge and maturity. Before allowing a child to ride a bicycle or scooter to school, please consider the following carefully:
  1.  The wearing of an approved safety helmet.
  2. The child’s ability to manoeuvre and control a bicycle or scooter in traffic.
  3. The safest route to take.
Bicycles or scooters are not to be ridden in the school grounds.  Inside the grounds bicycles or scooters are to be walked to and from the bicycle racks provided for them.  For security reasons, children are advised to have bike locks.  The bike racks are locked from 9.00am to 3.00pm to ensure the security of the bikes and scooters.  Collection of bikes or scooters outside of these times is by arrangement with the office staff.
