Entry and Exit to front carpark

20 July 2018

Our front carpark has entry and exit signage to ensure the safety of all. We ask that parents respect this and do not enter via the exit gates. As well, please do not use the front driveway as a drop-off zone in the mornings. These are both dangerous practices as there are often children on this roadway, even out of hours. Thank you for your support with this.

Use of the track during the holidays

21 June 2018

I have been approached by a few parents who would like their girls to train on the track for athletics during the vacation. It is fine for this to occur for Glennie girls only, as long as you are there to supervise them. They cannot be left on their own, as we have no supervisors or coaches available over this break. Please check into the Main Admin office beforehand to inform them of your presence, in case you are approached by security staff.

Also, please be aware that other groups use the track for paid activities and they receive first priority.

Mr Steve Warren
Head of Junior Years
