SafeST is a plan to
improve travel safety for school students. SafeST is part of council's
commitment to improve road safety by working with Sunshine Coast schools, and
the Department of Transport and Main Roads.
Our SafeST Committee
meets once per term and includes representatives from these organisations as
well as the P&C Association and personnel from Central Office and the
Queensland Police Service.
Since 2010 the SafeST
Committee have been active in the following areas
Improving line marking, signage and plantings around the school
- Changing the frequency of the traffic lights for walking across the roads
- Raising awareness of safety issues around the school with the appropriate authorities
- Preparing applications for crossings
The following fact sheet outlines the reasons for the design of our carpark, activities of the SafeST committee, and a response to common concerns and questions regarding this issue.
The Queensland Police Service and the Sunshine Coast Council have asked the school to advise parents and community members to report inappropriate behaviour on the roads directly to them, and not to the school.
Complaints and suggestions about the layout, design and use of roads and parking around the school should be directed in the first instance to the Sunshine Coast Council.

Community members can submit in writing (via the school's office) any suggestions and comments to the SafeST committee.
