Car Parking & Student Drop Off

Senior Campus

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.

Prep Campus

Parents are asked to keep in mind these few tips to help keep our traffic flowing.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

Holiday Camps

GPS Tennis Camp:

June/July 2020 Tennis Holiday Camp.  New students please contact the Tennis Department: [email protected] or phone 0405 388 143

TSS Cricket Camps: Dec 2019/Jan 2020December 2019 Camp is open to TSS and outside students from current Years 4-10, January 2020 Camp is open to TSS students or incoming students only for 2020 Years 5-12

The December TSS Cricket ‘Skills’ camp Wed 11th to Fri 13th December 2019 has a focus on skill development with video analysis backed with expert coaching of each player’s fielding, batting and bowling technique. This camp caters for a wide range of ages (“2020” Years 5-10) TSS Cricketers and non-TSS Students of various abilities. This camp assists players to have their game ready for the upcoming GPS Season and State Carnivals and is also open to non-TSS Students by completing and returning the “External Attendee Form”.

The Pre-GPS January TSS Cricket camp Mon 20th to Wed 22nd January 2020 has a focus on team work and game sense strategies with expert team coaches followed by practice matches vs a range of opponents. This camp is for all 2020 Years 5-12 GPS TSS Cricketers ONLY and will be run at TSS Senior Campus. It is also an excellent opportunity for ‘incoming’ TSS Students to get started. Incoming Student Attendee Form can be found here.

Both camps will be held at The Southport School (Senior Campus) with registration from 8:30am and the camp day running from 9:30am-2:45pm each day. * Some Trial matches may run later and we will advise.
During the three days, the boys will have access to Level 2 and 3 cricket coaches, TSS Teachers, specialist skill sessions, video analysis, games and fun activities as well as lunch being provided each day. The cost of the camp is $180.

For incoming 2020 TSS students it is an ideal way to access the TSS Cricket Program and to meet, train and compete alongside current TSS Students…incoming students complete the Incoming Student form and return to the TSS Sports Office (Phone: 5531 9828), or email [email protected]
For current TSS students registration is via Parent Lounge.

Unfortunately, we are not in a position where we can accommodate boys overnight so attendees at the camp will need to find their own accommodation if they do not live in the vicinity of the school.

A Confirmation email and any specific requirements for the camp will be sent 3-4 days before camp commencement.
