We are fortunate to have a carpark for Mary Immaculate Primary.
Parents are reminded that all cars need to be parked in marked spaces only. This allows for the safe passage of other cars through the car park whilst also maximising the safety of all pedestrians, including all children, at all times. Please respect other members of the community by using the car park in a safe and respectful manner.
ARRIVAL AT SCHOOL
Supervision begins at 8:25am.
Children should not be left at school before this time.
A ‘kiss and drop’ zone operates in the morning if you do not wish to walk your child into school. Adults must stay in the car at all times if using the ‘kiss and drop’ zone. The children’s bags must be in the car with them to ensure they can exit quickly. At no time can a car be left unattended in the ‘kiss and drop’ zone. If you wish to walk your child into school, please drive up the ramp to the car park. Children take their bags to the classroom and then must go straight to the playground for supervision. No one is to remain in the building before school unless they have made a formal appointment with a staff member. If this is the case, you must sign in at the office. Parents who come down onto the playground are asked to stand to the side and allow their child to socialise with the other children on the playground. The perimeter gates are locked each morning. The Barnier Drive main gate entrance remains open during the day.
DEPARTURE FROM SCHOOL
School finishes at 3:20pm and we appreciate your efforts to pick up your child promptly at that time.
Supervision ceases at 3:40pm. The 'kiss and drop' zone does not operate in the afternoon. Parents/caregivers are required to park in the top car park and collect children from the designated point outside the building. Please do not go into the building to collect children from classrooms. Please note, children are not allowed to walk to the car park and meet their parents. They must be collected from the teacher. The perimeter gates are closed after the last bus leaves in the afternoon. If there is an emergency and you are late to collect your child, please contact the school office. Children can become anxious when parents are late or they are unclear about their afternoon arrangements.
Students arriving before 8:25am or remaining at school after 3:30pm are required to be enrolled in COSHC. Students are not to be left outside the school main gate unsupervised. This is a child protection issue of grave concern.
