Keeping Back to School Safe

With Gunning Public School enrollment now sitting in the 90’s, there is a need to be safe around the school on Yass Street, Gunning. While School Zone Warning Signs indicate when most school children will be entering and exiting the school, there is a wider time scale to be safe.

‘Paradise for Kids’ before and after school care operates from 7 to 9 am and 3 to 6 pm on school days along with Gunning and Yass bound high school students leaving by bus from this same section of Yass Street from 7.30 am and returning till 4.30 pm. Slow down around all schools.
