Car Parking & Student Drop Off
Parents can access the Centenary Centre parking or Library Car Park (top of school off Ferry Road) if they are dropping or picking boys up from school.
Parents are prohibited from driving past the bus turnaround leading up to the main school.
In the interests of the welfare of our boarding community, it is imperative that there is minimal traffic on campus where our boys reside.
Parents are asked to keep in mind these few tips to help keep our traffic flowing.
- Please avoid using College Avenue
Having to let cars into the Lupus Street queue from College Avenue causes difficulties. Also, it would be good to give our long suffering neighbours of College Avenue some relief.
- Drive-through Pick Up
Everyone who wants to pick their son up from the drive-through pick up shelter MUST enter the carpark via Lupus Street. Parents who enter via Brolga Avenue and then attempt to cross over lanes to the pick up shelter, create delays.
- Park and Go
Our observations clearly demonstrate that the quickest way in and out of the school is to enter via Brolga Avenue and then park in one of the three rows of car parks. We now have a crossing supervisor manning the pedestrian crossing and boys can safely cross over to their parents parked car. Parents wishing to park MUST enter via Brolga Avenue. Parents who enter via Lupus Street and then try to cross over and park create delays.
- Arrive a little later
By 3.45pm each day the car park is virtually empty. Arrive between 3.45pm and 4.00pm and you will drive in and out.
- Do not leave your car if you are in the Drive-through lane
Please do not park and leave your vehicle in the drive through lane – even for just a moment. The success of the drive-through depends on keeping the traffic flowing. Drive right down as far as you can, do not stop mid-way down.
- Heading North? Use Warehouse Road and Harvest Court
The traffic lights at Harvest Court stay green longer than the ones at the top of Brolga Avenue and by using both sets of lights parents will halve the time it takes to get through.
