Car Parking

Parents can use the parish / school car park located at the front of the property on school days. To enter the car park – LEFT IN. To leave the car park – LEFT OUT.  Follow the instructions on the sign at the exit.

PARENTS ARE NOT PERMITTED TO USE THE CARPARK IN FRONT OF THE PARISH OFFICE – this is for parish visitors only.

Please observe the “drop-off” zone restrictions and other directional signs as displayed.  Green kerbing indicates the “drop-off” – “pick-up” zone.  This area is for students to exit or enter a car only and drivers must remain in the car.  A 2 - minute “drop-off” time is permitted on the “long straight” just inside the entrance.  Students are not to walk along the roadway in front of the fence.  The right hand lane is a drive through only lane.

After school, students wait on the grassy area between the library and the church under teacher supervision.  In the car park, drivers are asked to reverse into parking bays.  If there are no empty parking bays, drive out and park on the street. 

For the safety of students, parents are encouraged to drop off and collect them from the car park to ensure they are not waiting in adjoining streets or at the service station. On weekdays the driveway between the church and presbytery is for the use of parish and school staff only.
