Bicycle / Skateboard / Scooter safety

All bicycles/skateboards should be in good mechanical condition and properly equipped. Students riding to and from school must obey all legal requirements for road safety, as required by the NSW Road Traffic Authority, including the wearing of helmets. The riding of scooters and skateboards are not allowed on roads, or in the school.

Skateboards and scooters can be left (at own risk) at the Admininstration Office skate rack during the day. All bicycles are to be placed in the designated bike racks. Riding of bicycles/skateboards and scooters within the grounds of the school is strictly permitted.

Please ensure your child has a working lock for their bicycle.

Students must take care when leaving the school on bikes or scooters, as a large number of students, cars and buses are moving around at this time.

Byron Bay High School encourages responsible attitudes and behaviours of all student drivers and riders. Drivers should obey all Byron Bay High School safety signs erected in driveways and be aware of pedestrian safety in the vicinity of the school.

Pedestrian Safety

Students should not walk through the school car park. Where there are no paved footpaths available, students should walk on the grassed verge and not on the road, have a clear view of any oncoming traffic and be clearly visible. It is recommended that students walk facing oncoming traffic. Students should cross the road in a safe and responsible manner using the correct procedures. Hitch hiking is not an acceptable means of transport to and from school.

Passenger Safety

The school encourages the use of school buses. Student vehicles may be parked in the student section of the car park, at their own risk.

The designated bus zone and no stopping zone should not be used for setting down and picking up students. Parents are discouraged from double parking when setting down or picking up students, nor should they be called across roads to waiting vehicles.

Students are encouraged at all times to wear proper occupant restraints. Students, before becoming a passenger in a car, should think about safety, consider the driver’s experience and other circumstances.
