Parents have been sent text messages about personal safety on day one term three.
The alarm was raised following a man who approached a Healtey High student on Monday morning.
He started an inappropriate conversation with the child on their way to school yesterday in Currajong.
Parents across Townsville are being reminded to have stranger danger conversations with their children.
The male student made the right decision and removed himself from the situation.
Police are continuing their investigations with the matter.
