Friendly Reminders

  • Thanks again to all parents who have taken the time to support the school last term and into this next one.  We are fortunate to have supportive families and friends who take an interest in school life. A reminder that all volunteers are  required to complete the necessary volunteer requirements before volunteering at school. Opportunities to help out in various ways are communicated to families throughout the year. Please check in with these requirements if you would like to volunteer.
  • The Drop Off and Pick Up Zone (off Murrays Hill Rd) displays signage informing motorists that parking in the Zone is restricted to 2 minutes from 3.00 to 3.30pm. This traffic control was put in place from the City of Onkaparinga to better support traffic flow and minimise traffic congestion on Murrays Hill Rd prior to school dismissal. Traffic rangers visit schools (mostly without notice) to monitor these zones, and will issue infringement notices when appropriate.  Parents and friends who arrive early for pick up are encouraged to find suitable off-street parking and arrange a location to safely meet their child / children.
