Drop Off and Pick Up
We ask that parents dropping off and picking up students avoid coming in the School grounds between 8:30am to 9:15am and 2:45pm to 3:30pm. This is a heavy traffic time with students and the School's buses using the shared driveway. If you are coming to pick up a student from sick-bay, or have an appointment with a teacher, please park in a designated “visitor” car park only. The speed limit through the School grounds is 15km/h – please adhere to this limit.
