Parking Around The College
We hope you are enjoying a safe and good start to the school year. We understand that if you drop off your child by car to school, you may be experiencing some challenges in our drop off zones and surrounding streets. The best places to drop and pick your child up is along Gregory Street (Gates 1 and 2) or along Bayview Terrace (Gates 4, 5 and 6). https://www.clayfield.qld.edu.au/the-essentials/college-map
Please be mindful that if you are parking on these streets, you abide by the road rules, as we have had several complaints from our neighbours regarding parents' parking.
Please adhere to the following:
Don't Block Driveways
You must not park on or across a driveway or prevent access to a property. This restricts pedestrian access and can reduce visibility for other road users.
Restricting Waste Collection
Do not park in front of household rubbish bins. You must leave at least three metres of clear roadway beside your vehicle. This allows large vehicles, such as waste trucks to access local streets.
A driver must not stop a vehicle so that any portion of the vehicle is between any other stationary vehicle and the centre of the road.
Unlawful parking in school areas is a major safety hazard that poses a risk to children, pedestrians and other road users. Please do not stop in areas that are defined by signage or a continuous yellow line painted along the edge of a road.

Sustainable School Shop
The College has been looking at ways to efficiently buy and sell second-hand textbooks, uniforms, and other student resources.
We are delighted to announce that the College has teamed up with Sustainable School Shop, allowing parents/caregivers to easily trade these second-hand items. Previously the College Shop would accept some second-hand items, this will now cease, and all items are requested to go via Sustainable School Shop.
Results from other schools have been excellent - families have enjoyed a very comprehensive and convenient method of buying and selling second-hand items.
The new service is very accessible; it preferences our school first and then provides access to buy and sell items with families attending other schools broadening the reach for trading goods. Many schools use this service. Access to second-hand textbooks, uniforms and other resources is available all year. For the best results:
- Register on the Sustainable School Shop website and nominate Clayfield College
- A subscription to the service will be provided to you
- List your items for sale
- List wanted ads for those items you are looking to buy
- The school’s uniform and book lists are loaded into the system to make listing ads easy
- The system matches the ads of buyers with sellers and notifies the buyer via email
- Buyers contact sellers and arrange where and when to trade
- Most trading will occur with other parents from our school
- Parents are well supported via Sustainable School Shop’s telephone (0438 743 444) and email helplines
- The system is simple and easy to use - If you don’t have a computer, internet access or an email address, please call the Sustainable School Shop for assistance
- You can pre-arrange the transaction and then trade after the texts are no longer required by the current student.
Clayfield College is providing this service, so there is no cost for families. Each family that registers on the Sustainable School Shop will be given a subscription.
We are very excited about this new initiative, and we hope you will make the most of this opportunity and gain the benefit from recycling your children’s school items while at the same time helping other families within our College community.
