Dear Families

After school yesterday we were made aware of an incident in the community where a student was inappropriately approached by a stranger in a car. Fortunately the student was not hurt in this incident but it is believed to be the second occasion in this area.

The incident occurred in the Forreston area and targeted a student who was waiting for the bus. The previous incident occurred in the Birdwood area approx. two weeks ago.

Whilst we do not want to panic children and families, it is important that you are aware of this occurrence and talk with your children about how to stay safe when travelling to and from school or around the town.

Police are aware and we urge everyone to be vigilant and notify the Police if this happens again on 131 444.
