Back to School in 2024

Joan Pease MP2024-02-01

Bayside schools have now returned for the year, so it is very important that as locals, we remain vigilant when around our schools.

Key Points:

  • Bayside schools have returned for the year

  • Please be vigilant when driving in our school zones and stick to the speed limit

  • Students will need to put phones away when at school, starting from this year

School zones can become very busy during peak hour and term time, and young children may not have good road awareness, so please ensure that you follow the speed limit of 40 km/hr and drive with care around pedestrian areas, crossings and set-down zones. From the start of this year, the Queensland Government’s ‘away for the day’ campaign begins. This means phones will be put away during school hours. This means students will spend more time engaged with their friends and learning in the classrooms. Students can still wear their smartwatches, but these must have notifications switched off or in airplane mode, so that phone calls, messages and other notifications cannot be sent or received during school hours.
