ROAD SAFETY PROJECT

This committee was formed to discuss road safety questions for students traveling by foot and bicycle to and from school. The PSO is committed to ensuring that all road users are safe commuting to and from school and meet regularly with the school’s road safety committee to advance this cause.

It is the responsibility of everyone in our community to drive safely around other vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians. In response to a near miss on the bridge recently, the school has created a Accident Report Form to document incidents on the way to and from school in Cobham.  It should be returned to Francine O’Donnell in the Head of School’s Office.
