It has come to our attention that on Saturday afternoon whilst riding in the neighbourhood (on Great Eastern Ave), one of our students was approached by a male driver (greying brown hair and a beard, tattoo on neck) driving a white Toyota Hilux (single cab) and told to get in the car.
Commendably the child responded by going straight home and reporting this to parents. The parents reported this to police.
We advised people to be aware of this and report any further information to police.
As this has occurred in our neighbourhood, it is an appropriate time to further remind your children about how to respond to situations where they might feel uncomfortable or unsafe. We have a very safe community, and we want everyone to be able to move about comfortably. To maintain that, it is always better for everyone if there are many eyes looking out for the welfare of others.
