Parents are reminded that the roadway on Anzac Avenue leading into the Junior Years carpark, has a NO STANDING sign. If parents queue there, they risk a fine if police are patrolling the area.

Parents who wait at the drop-off zone cause a backlog at the carpark entrance, placing other parents at risk of a fine. Please support us by moving on if your daughter is not ready to be collected when you drive up to the drop-off zone. If she is there, please be quick getting her into your vehicle and moving off.

Thanks to parents who have been moving on in the carpark when their daughters are not ready. It is a great help.

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.
