Pedestrian child safety and parking – Brisbane City Council Fines
Council officers have been attending schools to promote safe parking and ensure that motorists are complying with local traffic conditions.
As you are aware, child safety and illegal parking around school zones remains a concern for parents, children, local residents and schools alike. Parking spaces during pick up and set down times are at a premium and subsequently, competition for these spaces can lead to poor driver behaviour and potentially dangerous parking practices.
While it is certainly not Council's intention to make parking near schools an overly onerous task, regulating parking activities is necessary to promote safe driving during pick up and drop off times. Throughout this school term, Council officers will be conducting patrols around our school to ensure safe parking. Parking fines may be issued in cases where illegal parking is observed.
Visit the Council's website at www.brisbane.qld.gov.au and search parking rules to learn more about parking in Brisbane.
Maynard Street gate
Concerns around parents using this gate access as a Stop, Drop and Go area. Please use the Nemies Road Stop, Drop and Go as we are concerned about student safety. Only families who walk to and from school should be using this gate.
Drop off and be on time for school
The bell for our school day to begin goes at 8:20am. Parents, could you please ensure you are dropping your child off at the gates before 8:30am. At 8:30am supervising staff will close the gates and go to work in classrooms. Any students arriving after this time will need to walk in by themselves. Any Prep students arriving at this time will need to be brought to the office by an adult.
Thank you for your assistance and support!
