THE SCHOOL holidays are officially over with most schools resuming this past Monday and for these little prep students (back row) Jay, Calypso, Liam, Kai B and (front row) Violet, Sonny and Ada they started their school journey at Coolum State School. We wish all of the students returning back to school a safe and happy school year with hopefully no interruptions.
With the return of students to Queensland’s schools this week Police are reminding motorists to be on the lookout around schools and to abide by the 40km/h speed zones around schools.
Police are urging drivers to exercise both patience and caution on the roads to protect some of the most vulnerable in our community.
School speed zones across the state typically capture the high-traffic hours around a school and are clearly signed and are in place to create a safe environment for our children. Please be patient as you drive and if you live near a school zone, leave a few minutes earlier to account for the lower speeds.
