Bicycles and scooters

Riding to School

 

 

 

Children who wish to ride bicycles or scooters to school must abide by the bicycle safety rules.

Following RTA and Police advice, children under 10 years of age should not cycle on roads or where there are driveways (i.e. footpaths).

Students who are 10 or 11 years old are encouraged to ride on footpaths rather than on the road. By law, students who are 12 years old or older must ride on the road, but are encouraged to avoid busy streets. Please ensure your child knows that, when riding on footpaths, pedestrians have right of way.

An approved helmet must be worn by all bicycle and scooter riders.

Bike racks are out of bounds during the school day. Skateboards or roller blades are not to be used as transport to and from school. Bikes and scooters are not to be ridden in the school grounds or on pathways into the school.
