Travelling to School

Safe school travel

There are a variety of transport options for children to commute to and from our school. Encouraging more children to walk or ride to school will help to reduce congestion and increase safety around our school. It is also one of the most time efficient ways for children to receive the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity every day.

Children should be directed by parents to use the school crossing when approaching and leaving the school.

2021 Carpark Procedures

Thank you for working with us to address the congestion and flow of traffic through the carpark during peak times. With an increased number of staff on active duty in the carpark educating families and enforcing expectations along with the presence of AFP and rangers, we are now experiencing far less congestion.

Parking and traffic management guidelines

Managing traffic and road safety at schools is a matter for everyone in the community. Children are more at risk in road environments around schools because they are smaller and less visible to drivers. Their behaviour can be less predictable than adults and they may have errors of judgement when dealing with traffic.

School environments are often congested during the peak times, because roads and carparks aren’t built to meet the high demand and struggle to cope over a short timeframe. The school community can help to reduce congestion and improve safety for children by walking or riding to school. If you need to drive, consider part way drop off or collection points or follow these traffic management guidelines to ensure children remain safe.

More information is available on the Transport Canberra website, including a range of educational resources for school communities to promote active and safe behaviours around schools.
