Many in our College community would have heard of an accident involving a student yesterday afternoon on Winterslow Road. Thankfully, although potentially serious, the student only suffered minor injuries and is home recovering.
This raises the issue of student vigilance when crossing Winterslow Road on the way to and from the Elizabeth Transit Hub. Winterslow Road is very busy and students must take great care when crossing.
There is a designated crossing area directly in front of the College, and another across the road bridge adjacent to the Elizabeth TAFE campus, All students are expected to use one of these for safety reasons. Can you please reinforce this message with your son or daughter.
We have raised this traffic management matter with the City of Playford and they are committed to working with the College to bring about a solution which will enhance student safety.
Thank you to those parents who have rung or sent messages of support for the injured student.
