At the beginning of the 2011-2012 new school year, the policemen and policewomen will be present around schools in order to make sure that your children can start the new school year in safety. Here's what you can do to help:
If your child has to go to school on foot, it is recommended that parents, with their children, take the route their children will have to borrow daily, and this, for the reasons listed below:
Teach them to obey all road safety rules:
Know which route your child takes to go to school
You’ll know which route they take and you'll know exactly where your children are should you wish to join them for one reason or another.
It’s also essential to make sure children understand the importance of not talking to a stranger or following them.
With regard to children who take the school bus:
Parents of the youngest children must show them where their bus stop is located. Parents are responsible for their child up to the point where the child gets on the school bus and, on the way back, as soon as the child gets off the bus.
Be careful out there and happy new school year 2011-2012!
