Is your daughter interested in design and creating special environments? These workshops are being held at the Glennie Junior Years Art and Design Studio over the weekend of 17 and 18 March.

Junior Years Car park

16 February 2018

There have been some issues with congestion in the car park in the afternoons between the times of 3:15 and 3:30pm. Please do not park in the drop-off zone and wait for your daughter. Girls take a few minutes to move from their classes to the carpark, so realistically, they do not arrive at 3:15pm. If parents park in the drop-off it translates into queues along Anzac Avenue.

We ask that if you arrive at the drop-off and if your daughter is not ready, please move on and go around the block and back. We apologise for any inconvenience, but for the greater good, it should alleviate some issues. There is a staff member on duty until 3:45pm so we encourage you to come a little later if possible.
