Ensuring Student Safety on Gilmore Street
Buses will now be dropping off and picking up students who are bus travellers at the new bus drop off and pick up area on Gilmore Street.
There are car parks across the road from this area. For student safety, I would prefer that you don’t park in these spaces until a granitic sand path is created next to that side of the road for students to walk along to meet up with the supervised pedestrian crossing to cross Gilmore Street safely.
Please DO NOT call your children across the road, I have already had concerned bus drivers call the school about children crossing the road unsupervised. Children were walking through, in front of and before the bus pick up area unsupervised this morning, this is extremely dangerous.
Also, please follow the road rules and don’t make U Turns on Gilmore, McLean or Murray Street. Please follow the detour signs to navigate your way around safely.
Also please continue to use the Woods Road drop off and pick up area to take the pressure of Gilmore Street, it is not completed yet.
