The City is home to:
- 22 primary and pre-primary schools

Community Safety Officers and patrols
Community Safety Officers patrol schools when students are being dropped off and picked up. This helps to provide a safer environment for students.
At the beginning of each school year, the Officers work with school communities to promote safety around schools. To assist our school community, the City has developed a Safety Around Schools brochure.
