Bike Safety & Protection



Two students recently had the unfortunate experience of having their bikes stolen from the College during the day. The theft was reported to the Police, and the College provided them with video surveillance footage. At this stage, the bikes have not yet been recovered.


A quick survey of other students bikes indicated that many were not secured to the rack using a lock and chain. Securing the bikes adds another layer of difficulty for any would-be thief.


Parents and students are reminded that College insurance policies do not cover personal property such as bikes, scooters and skateboards, and therefore, are left at the owner's risk.


Parents and students are also reminded that wearing a helmet is required by law in Western Australia. Failure to do so may incur a fine of $50.


For their safety, the College encourages all students to wear a helmet when cycling.
