Besides walking, active transport to and from school includes bicycles, scooters, skateboards, and rollerblades. Students must wear suitable footwear, a Standards-approved helmet, and any necessary safety gear when riding to and from school.
- Students using scooters, skateboards, or skates must be considerate, give way to other pedestrians and be aware of sneaky driveways.
- Students may not use bikes in the school grounds during school hours, unless it is an organised school event.
- Students must place their cycles in the cycle stands.
- Cyclists are expected to observe the road rules – hand signals, looking behind, mounting/dismounting, keeping well left, etc. Cyclists may not "double" other students to school.
- Each cyclist must wear a Standards-approved cycle safety helmet and have a roadworthy bicycle.
- Students can bring scooters from home for use at break times or may "hire" school scooters. Parents/Caregivers can opt out of this activity or may choose to provide safety equipment.
The police recommend that no child under the age of ten should cycle to school unless accompanied by an adult.
Glen Eden Primary requires a written permission slip from parents for students who wish to ride to school
