Under normal circumstances vehicles are not to be driven in school grounds and the staff car park is also ‘Out of Bounds’. There is a 2 minute pickup/drop off zone in front of the school with a parent car park (PDF, 48KB) across the road in Robert Rossi Park, which can be accessed through its entrance on Andrew Street.
Movement between home and school
All children should be thoroughly familiar with the route between home and school. Children should be made aware of hazards, know how to cross a road safely, and know elementary safety rules. By a co-operative approach between home and school your child should know not to loiter, not to visit friends without your express permission, not to talk to strangers or go home via a completely different route or method. For the safety of your child, it is essential that we are advised of any changes in after school ‘pick up’ arrangements.
If a person other than the parents/carers is to collect a child early from school, authority to do so will be required by letter or phone.
Children riding bicycles to school should know and obey the road safety rules. Children are required by law to wear a bicycle helmet. Bicycles are not to be borrowed or lent without approval. Children are not to ride bicycles within the school grounds and bicycles are to be placed in the racks provided. These racks are then out of bounds at all times except when a bicycle is being put in or taken out.
Behaviour on buses
Behaviour on a school bus should be of a high standard to ensure the safety of all students and so as not to bring this school into disrepute. Behaviour on buses used for sporting and other excursions will be carefully supervised. Movement in the bus, eating or projecting arms are not permitted.
