STUDENT TRAVEL TO AND FROM SCHOOL

Students will arrive and leave the College in a variety of ways.  Safety of students is paramount whichever mode of transport is used.

Car

Pick-up and Drop-off Rules for the front of the College-Junior School Car Park

Zone 1- Pick-up and Drop-off Zone

  • The Green and Red Zones after the pedestrian crossing are the designated Pick-up and Drop-off Zone for Junior School
  • You have 2 minutes to pick-up and drop-off
  • Keep the traffic flowing! Do the loop and come back while you wait for your child to arrive
  • Use your 2 minutes to ensure your child is safely in the car, the door is properly closed and the seat belt is fastened.

 

Zone 2– Stop and Drop Zone

  • The parking bays before the pedestrian crossing is the designated Stop and Drop Zones for Middle/Senior School parents

Ideas for Pick-Up and Drop Off

  • Adjust pick-up time by 5 minutes – it can make all the difference. Peak pick-up time is 2.45 to 3.05
  • By 3.05 each afternoon there are many places in the front car park vacant. Consider altering your pick-up time by 5 minutes
  • Consider organising a safe meeting point with your child away from the front of the College
  • Car pool or organise a Park and Stride with other parents in your neighbourhood

 

Walking

There are walking and bike tracks around the College and a number of pedestrian gates for students to use.  Students should not use vehicular gates or walk through any car parks inside or outside the grounds.  There are either lights or pedestrian crossings near all exits to the school and these should be used at all times when crossing roads.

Bike

Bike racks are designated for students in each sub-school.  It is strongly recommended that students secure their bikes while in these racks.  There are walking and bike tracks around the College and a number of pedestrian gates for students to use.  Students should WALK their bikes along these tracks unless they are marked with a special bike lane.  In this case, they should give way to pedestrians.  No student should ride a bike in the grounds of the College.  Helmets must be worn at all times.
