The Yellow Line – It’s there for a reason!

8 May 2023

Ever been at a station and wondered why there’s a yellow line or strip of tactile markers? Ever since we were kids ourselves, we’ve had it instilled in us the importance of standing back. But what if that information wasn’t passed on? What if assuming young people know the importance of staying back from the yellow line puts our young people at risk of injury or worse?

So why is it there? Train stations can be dangerous. With any heavy vehicle movement, there’s risk if the appropriate behaviours are ignored or not followed. The yellow line exists as a visual reminder that by crossing that line, you are putting yourself and potentially others at risk.

Find out what Allan Fuller Transit Supervisor has to say about the need to stay safe around our trains.

Look Up, Look Out…BUS!

However, an increase in travel activity means an increased risk of a child being injured while making their way around our community. With close calls and an increasing number of students injured after alighting a bus, a greater level of attention and recognition about the risks involved is needed. Find out how you can assist us in promoting safety around buses.

Urban Jungle Out There

3 Aug 2018

On the 29th of June, the Year 9 Cohort participated in the Ultimate Urban Challenge, a Greatest Race style course spanning between Perth and Fremantle with the goal of not only helping students navigate and adapt in an urban environment, but also to push them to learn to become independent, work in a team and have confidence in stressful situations. This was even more challenging than usual as the use of mobile phones was prohibited.
