Students from East Narrogin Primary School have reportedly been involved in three “near misses” with traffic in recent weeks.

In their May newsletter, the school advised parents to avoid using Butler Street to drop off and pick up children because the road was frequently used by school buses.

“I have recently spoken to students, staff and parents about the importance of road safety, as I know that many of our students walk and ride to school,” East Narrogin Primary School principal Louise Armstrong told the Observer.

“There have been a couple of incidents reported to me where students appeared to have a lack of awareness and understanding of the need to be alert around traffic while on their way to school.

“At school, we deliver road safety education programs through our curriculum using resources from the School Drug Education and Road Aware Program. Parents also have access to these resources and we encourage them to reinforce the road safety message at home with their children.”
