The roads around Somerville Intermediate school are extremely busy and hazardous to cyclists. Parents are to take responsibility for allowing their child to cycle to school. Please provide a note to school if your child is to cycle. Students must wear a helmet and should know the road code. Bicycles at school are left at the owner's risk.


Road Safety

We ask that parents model aspects of road safety:

  • In the way they use and respect pedestrian crossings.
  • In the manner in which they park.
  • In the way they use the loop road in front of the school.
