In past Navigators I have advised drivers of vehicles that the roads into the school and the main driveway belong to the Department of Education and all Department policies including no smoking on school grounds applies.

I now need to draw everyone’s attention to the need to drive in these areas slowly (not more than 20 kilometres per hour) for the safety of all pedestrians especially children.

Of late there have been a few near misses as a result of vehicles travelling too fast.

The crosswalk is an area of particular attention as children tend to walk onto the crosswalk with the belief that everyone will stop for them.

During the morning no one is controlling the traffic and great care needs to be taken on this driveway.
