NEW SCHOOL ZONE TIMES IN OPERATION AT MOREE EAST PUBLIC SCHOOL

MEMBER for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall has today advised Moree road users that the school zone times for Moree East Public School have changed to 7.30am to 9.30am and from 1pm to 3.30pm on gazetted school days.

Mr Marshall said the changes were in response to new school hours which were being trialed at the school.

“The Moree East Public School is now operating from 8am to 1.15pm and it is hoped these changed hours will bring about a better connection with the local community and improve education outcomes for their students,” Mr Marshall.

“Consequently, following a request, Roads and Maritime Services has updated the school zone signs and will adjust the operation times of the flashing lights in Adelaide Street.

“Electronic message signs will remain in place around the school to remind motorists to check their speeds during the new school zone hours. The changed school zone times will operate on Adelaide Street, Boston Street and Thompson Avenue.

Mr Marshall said the school would review the operation of changed attendance hours at the end of a 12 month trial.

“Other schools in Moree will continue to have standard operating times of 8am to 9.30am and 2.30pm to 4pm,” he said.

“School zone speed limits are enforceable and offences, including speeding in a school zone, can be up to seven demerit points and a fine of $2,400.”
