Traveling to school

Parking and picking up/setting down children

The number of parents driving their children to and from school continues to increase; therefore extreme caution is required on the roads surrounding the school as the possibility of an accident is very real. When picking up or setting down children, the parking restriction signs must be obeyed, as they are necessary for the safety of children.

Staff car parks are not to be used as a pick up and set down points for children, nor are to be used as thoroughfares. Children are not allowed to enter the car park as it is a hazardous area with cars moving in and out.

Road safety

Children riding to school need parental guidance and training regarding road safety and safe practices. This is reinforced at school but your role as parent is vital. All children must use a bike helmet and ride on the dual pathways. Care needs to be taken at driveways and the rights of pedestrians respected. Parents should regularly check the safety of their children’s bicycles.

Bicycles and scooters are not allowed to be ridden in the school grounds and must be parked in the cycle racks provided. The locking of bicycles is the student’s responsibility.

Crosswalks

Your child’s safety is our top priority. Please make sure your children use the crosswalks provided at all times.

Dogs

Please do not bring your dog to school. For the protection of children with allergies and/or a fear of dogs, parents are asked not to bring dogs onto the premises under any circumstances.
