School deals with stranger danger

BRONWYN Welburn couldn't praise her daughter's school enough yesterday for the way it has handled two incidents of strangers approaching students this week.

Bronwyn said staff at the Frenchville State School had kept parents informed of the situation.

“I am aware of what's been going on these past couple of days,” said Bronwyn, whose daughter is in Grade 2.

Everything was calm at yesterday's pick-up of students with teachers keeping a close eye on the children around the school grounds.

“I drop my daughter off each day and pick her up,” said Bronwyn, whose seven children have attended the school.

“The school and police have been doing a great job. Everyone is being cautious.”

She said the reported incidents, one on Monday and the other on Tuesday, were concerning for all parents.

“It is a worry,” Bronwyn said.

“I'm sure all parents are being extra vigilant.”

Reports of the two incidents circulated across Rockhampton by email yesterday.
