Great to see so many people (students and staff) cycling and scootering to and from school each day. Remember that you need to observe road rules while on your bike. Stick to the left, watch for vehicles and give way to pedestrians. In school remember to walk your bike to the main gate or the track by Room 20. You can then jump on your bike and ride. (remember to walk your bike across the crossing). Be safe, be seen and look out for others!
