School pick up zone

From 3pm Monday to Friday - Please do not have your car in carline idling before 3pm.

Parents and carers who choose to use the ‘Pickup Zone’ will be asked to place the surname of the child on an A4 piece of paper either on the dashboard or in the passenger sun visor.

Pickup zone Instructions - To make sure our students are safe we have developed a school pickup zone with a specific set of steps:

  • Enter Hewlett Street via Dickson Street.
  • The first car stops at the top of the pickup zone and subsequent cars pull in behind. Ensure the Real Lane exit and turning circle are kept clear.  
  • Children are supervised and not allowed to exit the school gates until the person who has come to collect them has stopped safely within the pickup zone.
  • Only the students of the first three cars waiting in the pickup zone will be called and loaded.
  • Cars queuing behind will move up to the top of the pickup zone when the first three cars have driven off. 
  • Drivers must exit the pickup zone slowly and carefully, please exit by turning right into Read Lane.

Drivers are not to leave their car for any reason.

If your child/ren is/are not in the waiting area once the zone has started in the afternoon, you will be asked to move on and come back around.

Teacher volunteers assist with the operation of the ‘pick up zone’, please be respectful and attentive to their instructions. 

Getting to and from school safely

As a parent or carer, it’s your responsibility to get your child to and from school safely. Student safety is our priority.

Keep our school community safe by:

  • driving and parking safely, even if it means parking further away and walking the rest of the way to school
  • being a good role model
  • never calling your child from across the road
  • using the safest place to cross the road.

Share this information with your child’s carers such as grandparents, nannies and friends who may be taking your child to or from school.

For parents and carers of younger children

Discuss with your child how to be safe when:

Also talk about and practise:

  • safe travel routes
  • plans for when unexpected things happen
  • what to do in wet weather.
