Our school can't be accessed from Ocean Drive. To find the school gates you will need to take Glen Haven Drive and then turn left into Valley View Road.

Visitors are asked to park on Valley View Road during school bus hours (before 9am and between 3pm-4pm). At other times, you may drive through the gates and park in the bus bay turning circle.

For special events out of school hours, visitors may park in the staff car park.

Getting to school safely

Student safety is our priority. We encourage the whole community to be safe travellers on their way to and from school.

Parents are responsible for how their child gets to and from school. Plan ahead by discussing the following:

  • safe travel routes
  • how to share the road safely
  • alternative arrangements for when unexpected things happen.

Bus travel

Students can apply for a bus pass at the school office and should be aware of road safety around buses. After school, students are supervised by a student as they board buses. Students that catch buses at 3:26pm may board the bus after the bell. Other students can wait in the quadrangle until their bus is called.

Students that catch a different bus to after school activities should board the bus last to ensure all students can arrive home safely.

The Busways website is a useful resource to view timetables, apply for a replacement bus pass or to find out more about buses to our school.

Car travel

Students that have their license may drive to school and park on Valley View Road. We expect students to drive responsibly and behave sensibly when driving. If there are any issues with student driving, please contact the school. Parents that drop students at school are asked to do so in the "drop off zone" and be aware of road safety.

Please drive under the 40km/h limit around our school. The following signs can be found at our school

No Stopping: under no circumstances are you permitted to stop here. Penalty $330 + 2 demerit points

No Parking: you may stop here for less than 2 minutes and remain within 3m of your car. Penalty $183 + 2 demerit points

Bus Bay: before and after school our turning circle is a Bus Zone and cars are not permitted to enter or park here. Penalty $330 + 2 demerit points

Please be aware of signage at our school to ensure the safety and convenience of everyone.

Riding a bike

Students that ride to school are asked to respect road rules. Some paths near our school are shared, meaning they are used by both pedestrians and bikes. Students riding bikes on these paths are asked to be mindful of pedestrians and respect shared path rules. The school has a bike rack located near the school gate.

Students riding skateboards, scooters or roller blades can ride on pedestrian paths and be aware of rules.

Walking to school

We encourage students to walk to school for physical activity but should do so in a safe way. Remember to STOP LOOK LISTEN THINK before crossing the road. At our school there is a pedestrian crossing located in the bus bay area and students are asked to use this to cross the road before exiting the school.

Subsidised school travel

Transport for NSW provides subsidies to assist school students.

  • The School Student Transport Scheme provides eligible students with free or subsidised travel on public transport between home and school.
  • The School Drive Subsidy may help towards the costs of driving children to school if you live in an area where there is no public transport.

Distance education

Distance education is an equity program for students who are geographically isolated or whose individual circumstances prevent them from regularly attending school. Students must meet one of the conditions in Distance Education Enrolment Procedures to be eligible for access to this provision.
