Dropping off and collecting students from school

NO PARKING ON THE VERGE

 

The Drop Off area in the Administration car park becomes very congested with some cars having to queue on the road waiting for access.  In order to alleviate this problem, parents are asked to drive as far forward as possible in the Drop Off area, even if it means an extra 10m walk for their son (it will do them good!).

 

Please make the drop off as quickly and safely as possible.

 

Parents are also asked not to park in the 'Drop Off' area if they need to visit the College Office.

Please use either Pindari or Kershaw Road when picking up in the afternoon – using the marked parking bays where possible.

 

MESSAGE FOR YEAR 7 PARENTS

The oval will be available for drop-off and pick-ups until FRIDAY 8 FEBRUARY.  Hopefully this week has allowed time to arrange buses and alternative drop/pick-up locations. Please EXIT the oval at the Gymnasium end of the oval. Thank you.

Your assistance with both of these concerns will help make for a safer environment for our boys.

Supervision

Parents please note that supervision at the College is between 8:10am and 3:50pm.

We would prefer students were NOT on the grounds outside of these hours as there is no supervision.

 

For safety reasons, students arriving before 8:10am and still on the grounds after 3:50pm, are not to play any unorganised sporting activities and are to stay in the quadrangle area.

Medication

If any student needs to take medication during school hours he is required to have the medication stored in the College office.  The medication should be given to the College receptionist and should be accompanied by a letter containing the following information:

  • Student’s name and Form room.
  • The purpose of the medication.
  • The name and dosage of the medication and time to be taken.
  • Parents’ daytime contact phone numbers.
  • Action Plan if require Epipen (within expiration date), Ventolin, etc.

All medication will be self-administered.
