Bicycles

The roads around Somerville Intermediate school are extremely busy and hazardous to cyclists. Parents are to take responsibility for allowing their child to cycle to school. Please provide a note to school if your child is to cycle. Students must wear a helmet and should know the road code. Bicycles at school are left at the owner's risk.

 

Road Safety

Please note:

To minimise the potential harm to students created by cars and buses competing for space, the loop road at the front of the school is closed between 8.00 - 8.45 am and 2.45 - 3.30 pm each day, except for buses, shuttles and students requiring assistance.

 

10 kph only through the loop road at all times.

 

Road Patrol Times - Meadowland Drive

8.10 - 8.30 am and 2.55 - 3.15 pm

Outside of these times, the back gate is locked. Please use the Woodgers Way walkway.

 

We ask that parents model aspects of road safety:

  • In the way they use and respect pedestrian crossings.
  • In the manner in which they park.
  • In the way they use the loop road in front of the school.
