Safety of the children and adults is important
While the school is trying to look out for the safety of all pupils by deploying security guards, parent volunteers and staff as traffic wardens inside and outside the school, we need a whole community
approach to ensure that everyone is safe.
This will cause some inconvenience but we appeal to parents / guardians to place the safety of all children and the interest of the neighbouring
community above convenience and one’s own interest
