Holiday ends, now it’s back to school for students

BROTHERS Blake and Shaun Ransome were among the thousands of Fraser Coast school children who made the most of the final hours of school holidays yesterday.

Blake, 5, and Shaun, 7, head back to St Helen's State School on Tuesday alongside their peers, meaning motorists will have to pay attention to school zones.

Organising schoolbags and lunches was on the list for mum Julie Taylor last night.

"They're looking forward to going back seeing their friends again," she said.

RACQ issued a reminder to drivers to stick to reduced speeds in school zones.

"School zones are one of the most dangerous places on our roads," RACQ spokeswoman Renee Smith said.
