Better Moves Around Schools

Better Moves Around Schools program is run in collaboration with Moonee Valley City Council to improve traffic, safety and parking management, and encourage walking and cycling when travelling to and from school.

The drop off and pick up zones are easily identified by bright pink coloured signage and line markings, and they have improved traffic flow and created a safer environment for children to be dropped off and picked up at school.
