Green Zone (Burrendah Rd) and Stop, Drop & Go (Wongaburra St)
From 2.30pm – 3.30pm these zones are two minute pick-up
areas. Parking in the zones is illegal
and extremely frustrating for drivers who use the zones correctly. When you park in the zones you endanger the
lives of our students by causing traffic chaos.
Please consider others.
The Green Zone will have footpath markings re-painted by the
end of this week and a flyer will be sent home to all families this week as a
reminder of how to use the Zone correctly.
Thank you to the majority of parents who use the Zone
The pedestrian gate at the bottom of the school grounds on
Burrendah Rd (next to Avenues Childcare) will be locked each day from
2.55pm – 3.30pm, commencing this Thursday, February 2. Parents normally
entering and exiting the grounds through the gate are now invited to do so
through the gates which will be opened at the Green Zone (front playground) or
gates closer to the Administration building. Leaving the bottom gate open
has previously acted like a magnet, allowing children to run down the hill in
the school grounds and into the traffic or for them to believe they can weave
their way through the cars to other side of the street. Each year since
2014 we have had a child hit by a car as they either left or attempted to enter
the school grounds (in the morning). While closing the bottom gate for
35min each day has not been a popular decision with some parents in the past,
student safety is far more important in my decision making. Thank you for
your co-operation with this matter.
