Things gets busy in our school car park at 8:45am and at 3pm, and particularly busy at school events and Friday assemblies. It is a challenge, but if we all park sensibly, drive slowly and consider a few strategies people stay safe! Remember to share these safety messages with grandparents and other family members who attend our events or pick children up.
Please do not park on the grass verge in front of the school on either side of the road. It limits visibility for people leaving the car-park as they move into an 80km zone. Having children cross the road to meet you is particularly dangerous.
Use the area in front of the library on the left side as a quick pick up - drop off area. Use the other car-parks, and under the trees on the left side towards the exit as longer term parking if you are watching your kids play, or need to talk to someone.
Park on the grass area carefully. Think about how you and others are going to get out. Drivers need to be super careful as children see the grass area as safe!
Use the pathways and the pedestrian crossing when moving to and from the outer car-parks. It helps if parents show the way here!
Take particular care when driving near the pedestrian crossing! The pedestrians have right of way. Please do not park over the crossing.
