School Drop Off and Pick Up Procedure

For safety reasons, the carpark is only for staff. The front gates will remain open all day and the second (electronic gate) will remain closed all day. The staff of St John’s will use the 30 car parking spaces at the front of the school between the gates.

The staff parking area has been marked with parking bays and pedestrian crossings. This forms a turning circle for parents. Family vehicles are asked to enter the school site via Paisley Drive and leave using Jayne Street. There are five kiss and go zones painted in yellow for families to use.

Drop off

Parents may drive to the pedestrian gate where students can safely alight from the left hand passenger side of the vehicle. There will be a staff member in a hi-vis vest on duty from 8.25am to 8.40am to ensure students move safely from the car into the school grounds immediately. Parents must not leave their vehicle during the school drop off period.

Pick up

During the school pick up period, parents are asked to enter the school via Paisley Drive. They will then be required to queue in a safe and orderly fashion. Please do not park across the school crossing and be respectful of our neighbours. Students being collected will sit under the prep verandah and will be called by the teacher on duty as each vehicle approaches. Students will be assisted into vehicles at the foot of the ramp on the side of the Paul Hartin Learning Centre. Family vehicles are then asked to leave the school grounds promptly via Jayne Street.
