After School

Parents are asked to notify the school if a child is not going home in the usual manner or with the adult who usually collects them. This is an important safety issue. Parents need to notify the school if their children are walking or riding home.

Children who walk or ride home must leave the grounds following the footpath.
Please do not park in the marked ‘Kiss ‘n Drive’ pick up area at any time. Staff will ensure your child gets safely into the car in this area. Parents who wish to park and wait for their children either in the car or outside the classroom are asked to park in the marked areas in the main car park.

For safety reasons please DO NOT:

  • Call your child across the car park to your parked car
  • Try to overtake in the car park
  • Cause a traffic jam either in the car park or the round-a-bout on Kurrajong Blvd

Please do not park in the disabled parking bay unless you are displaying a valid ACROD sticker.
