Staff Car Park


It has been brought to the schools attention several times since the start of Term 1 that many parents are using the staff carpark to drop off their students.  Once again, there have been several near misses where children have run in front of cars. After speaking to staff I would like to inform our  community that the staff carpark will be closed from 8.15 am until 9.15 am and from 2.45 pm until 3.45 pm each day.  This will inconvenience staff who either start or finish at times when the carpark will be locked, however they understand that it is for the safety of our children. 

All members of our school community are asked to support us with this by ensuring that you do not park in the carpark that is clearly marked for staff an d to use the parent car park off Mephan Street.
