SECONDARY CAMPUS EMU CROSSING

A new school ‘Emu’ crossing has been installed on Lawrie Street to improve safety for all students. Emu crossings are part-time crossings which only operate when the orange flags are displayed. As a driver, you must give way to pedestrians when the flags are displayed and wait for students to completely vacate the crossing before proceeding. Flags will only be displayed during busy crossing periods. The crossing has been installed within the existing school zone. In school zones, drivers must travel below 25km/h throughout the entire zone if there is a student present anywhere within the zone, including on the path. To reduce traffic congestion around the new crossing, we recommend active transport modes or, if picking up your children from school, parking a few streets away and encouraging your children to use the new crossing to reach you. Please read the document below from the South Australian Police Road Safety Centre regarding emu crossing road safety.

PASTORAL SUPPORT

It is inevitable that in a school the size of St Michael’s College, many of our students will experience the illness and/or death of a close family member or friend. Many of you are familiar with my involvement with the families of the school. I would like to invite you to call me if there is any assistance I can offer with bereavements, funerals or support for your families during illness, whether it be a visit or prayers.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me directly via email: SrNithya@smc.sa.edu.au and/or mobile: 0432 340 268.

With blessings,
Sr Nithya, Pastoral Support Worker
