Help make Earl Street safe for all students
As you maybe aware the School and the P&C have been in discussion with the Hunters Hill council for some time about improving the traffic flow on Earl Street to aid the safe drop off and pick up of the children before and after school.
The Hunters Hill council has proposed a 9 car set down bay along Earl Street outside the school. While the 9 car set down bay will greatly improve the traffic flow and as a result the safety for the children during drop off and pick up, the construction of the set down bays does require the removal of the Moreton Bay fig tree. Some residents of Earl Street have voiced their disagreement to the removal of the tree and have asked the council for an alternative solution. The council did offer an alternative that we believe did not meet the objectives of improving the traffic flow and most importantly the safe drop off and pick up of the children.
The Hunters Hill council will now be considering this matter at their next meeting on 22nd May 2017 and the P&C and the School will be in attendance at that meeting to make our case for the construction of the set down bays. Any parent that wishes to attend the meeting to show their support for this initiative is welcome to join us or if they are unable to attend if you could sign the attached petition to signify your support for this development.
Thanks and regards
