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.

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.

Subsidised school travel

Transport for NSW provides subsidies to assist school students.

  • The School Student Transport Scheme provides eligible students with free or subsidised travel on public transport between home and school.
  • The School Drive Subsidy may help towards the costs of driving children to school if you live in an area where there is no public transport.

School pickup zone

A Pick Up and Drop Off Zone is marked at the front of our school in Riverview Avenue. This prevents parking in the zone between 8.00am and 9.30am, and 2.30pm and 4.00pm each school day. During these hours, cars may only stop briefly to drop off or pick up students.

To assist with the safe collection of students at the end of the school day, students are required to remain on the school hall veranda, until they can see their family car parked in the zone.
