Bicycle Travel

Students who ride bicycles to the College are reminded of the current law in respect to the wearing of safety helmets.  A secure area is available at the College for bicycles.  Bikes must be placed in this area immediately on arrival at school. The area is then locked for the day.

  1. Be patient. Please. Impatience is the root cause of most traffic accidents.
  2. Do not park within 10 metres either side of any of the College’s entrances. Do not let your car be the one from behind which a child ran out or which blocks the vision of a driver.
  3. Use the marked area between Davine and McCarthy ovals for drop-off and pick-up purposes between 7.30am and 3.45pm.
  4. Please wait in line until reaching the yellow markings and allow your sons to enter/exit vehicles ONLY when you are parked within this appointed area.
  5. Move as far forward in the drop off zone as possible even if it means an extra 10 metres walk for your son (it will do him good).
  6. Ask your son to enter/exit from the left-hand side of the vehicle.
  7. Please do not get out of the car when you pick your son up or drop him off as this slows the traffic considerably and makes others impatient.
  1. Pick your son up after 3.25pm – the queue always moves freely after this time. Your son can study in the library, read or play with friends while he waits. (The queue always moves freely for drop-off in the morning).
  2. Use the pick-up/drop-off zone in Lindum Station car park. The students can walk along the College path to the station to get there. I have seen some other parents do this and it seems effective and safe.
  3. Pick your son up in Euston Street.
  4. If coming in the main drive, the lower grass car-park areas may be used to pick-up/drop-off your son.
  5. The bus turn around may be used to drop students off in the morning but may not be used for pick-ups before 3.45pm
  6. Pick your son up and drop him off on North Road or Sandy Camp Road only ON THE SCHOOL SIDE OF THE ROAD.
  1. Parking your car on the side of the road opposite the school (unless you get out of your car and meet your son on the College side of the road).
  2. Picking your son up on Bulgin Avenue. The Bulgin Avenue entrance to the College is the natural exit for students who walk home to Wynnum North, and parking there puts them at risk (as well as you), clogs up the traffic (making others impatient) and annoys our neighbours.
  3. Using under IPAC, outside the main office or outside the Chapel as points for drop-off or pick-up after 7.30am and before 3.45pm. There are too many students moving there during this time.
