SAFETY is a priority at Greenfields Primary School and principal Kevin Clarke gives a snapshot of the school’s initiatives.
AS A school we encourage students to ride their bikes or walk to school as an important part of keeping active and healthy.
We encourage children to be active and keep fit by riding bikes to school or walking.
The students continually learn about the importance of wearing a helmet when riding their bike, as well as maintaining a safe bike.
Ride to School Day and Walk to School Day are annual traditions for Greenfields Primary students and many parents get involved through the school council and P&C.
We have great support from our parent body and the Greenfields community in general.
Stranger danger is discussed with all children on a regular basis for those students who do walk to school on their own.
The admin staff are on duty in the car parks and around the school before and after to monitor traffic and children and all students report to the undercover area upon on arrival to school.
We have a very proactive parent body who report any safety issues to us so we can address them immediately.
We have 5km/h signs painted on our driveway in the car park and road safety is taught in all classrooms.
