Speed limit around the school

Road Safety

by Queen's High School

Please remember that when driving in the school grounds there is a 5kph speed limit. Please do not park on the yellow lines or the bus stops; this is becoming a real hazard especially on Surrey Street and compromises the safety of our girls. Slow down around our school to 40kph.
