Student Car Driving & Parking

Student drivers must provide the Head of Senior School with vehicle registration number and evidence of drivers licence. Any form of dangerous, erratic or attention-seeking driving will not be tolerated and parking privileges will be withdrawn from offenders.

Students who drive to school are asked to park their vehicles in Morris Road. Parking is not permitted on school grounds.

Vehicles must not be used during the school day; drivers must travel on school buses for activities outside the campus, including sport and excursions.

Written authorisation is required for taking other students in vehicles. To transport siblings to or from school, a driver must submit written approval from the parents.

In the case of students outside the family, written approvals must be submitted from the parents of both the driver and the student/s.

When driving within the college grounds, the 15 kph speed limit must be observed.

Cycling

Students may cycle to school provided they are competent riders, their bicycles are in safe working condition, and they wear appropriate bicycle helmets. Students should dismount when crossing all roads. Students must abide by road rules, and dismount once in the school grounds.  Once at school all bicycles must be locked in the bike racks provided.

Car Park and Internal Road Safety

Parents are asked to observe the speed limits (15KPH) posted on the College internal roads.

Special care is required where pedestrians and vehicles may use the same area or where children may cross internal roads.

Children using on-site car parks which contain median strips must use these strips for walking away from cars (when arriving at school) and for walking to cars (when leaving school).
