Road Safety—Your Help is Needed

As the traffic continues to increase around the AP1/AP2 turn along Nguyen Van Huong in the mornings, our guards are working hard to ensure that your children are as safe as they can be when they arrive at school.  Two guards at Gate A are on duty to help cyclists and pedestrians arrive and to assist those being dropped off by car.  One additional guard is posted at the gate to ensure that only students and authorised people come onto campus at this busy time.

The guards’ job is made very difficult by having to deal, in addition, with those crossing the road underneath the footbridge.  For this reason, we expect all pedestrians arriving at the AP1 side of the road to use the footbridge.  This will ease the congestion at Gate A and allow the guards to spend time assisting those arriving at the AP2 side of the road.

The following section is from Page 15 of the Parent Handbook:
Students who arrive by car can be dropped off and collected at Secondary Gates A or C, or at Gate C on the AP1 primary campus. Traffic outside school becomes congested at the beginning and the end of the school day. Extreme caution should be exercised at all times.  Students are not allowed to walk across the road unless supervised during an evacuation.  The footbridge must always be used.

Your cooperation with these measures is appreciated.
