Driving and parking safely near our school is an essential part of keeping our children safe and happy.
Mornings and afternoons are busy times for pedestrians and drivers outside of our school. With over 300 students (and parents) entering and leaving the school at the same time, there are bound to be issues with parking, pick ups and drop offs.
We encourage parents to familiarise themselves with the local road rules and parking restrictions to avoid both endangering students and receiving council fines.
You can help keep our children and community safe by remembering the following:
drop your child off and pick them up on the school side of the road - if you can not park on the school side, park and walk to the gate to pick up your child
never call out to them from across the road - it is very dangerous
always take extra care in 40km school zones
follow all parking signs - these help keep your child as safe as possible
park responsibly even if it means you have to walk further to the school gate
never double park - it is illegal and puts children at risk
never do a U-turn or a three point turn outside the school as it puts children at risk of harm
model safe and considerate pedestrian and driver behaviours to your child
always give way to pedestrians particularly when entering and leaving driveways
