Year 10 Laptops

In years gone by, the IT Unit has traditionally handed out laptops during the first week of term.

In 2019, we would like to advise that Year 10 Student Laptops (those who have signed up to the Shalom College Laptop Leasing Program) can collected laptops before School commences at the following times from Hogan 4:

  • Wednesday 23 January: 8am – 3pm
  • Thursday 24 January: 12pm – 3pm
  • Friday 25 January: 8am – 12:30pm
  • Tuesday 29 January 8am – 3pm 

When you come to collect the laptop, please allow at least 15mins for a technician to assist students in logging onto the laptop for the first time and setting up their email account.

For those who cannot come to collect during these times, we will hand out the remainder devices next week during classes.

For our BYO Laptop/Macbooks Students, you do not need to action anything at this point.

We apologies for any inconvenience these outages may cause.

Car Parking and Student Drop Off / Pick Up

EGGMOLESSE STREET CAR PARK - The NEW CAR PARK can be used for staff and student parking and for parents for morning/afternoon drop off/pick up. Can we please ask for those using the car parks to try and use the most appropriate entrance for your circumstances;

MAIN ENTRANCE– 9 FITZGERALD STREET: Best for parents/students and staff who want to head north when exiting the College – so people wanting to head towards Maynard Street, Branyan Road and Enterprise Street as they leave. Please also use this entrance for any late arrivals (after 8:40am), early pick-ups (before 3pm) and sick bay collections as this is the closest car park to student reception. College visitors (volunteers, guests, trades etc.) please continue to use this entrance as you will need to sign in at the front office.

NEW CAR PARK - 21 EGGMOLESSE STREET: Best for parents/students and staff who want to head south or west when exiting the College - so people wanting to head towards Thabeban Road, Kay McDuff Drive, the Ring Road and those wanting to head west onto Eggmolesse Street towards Johanna Boulevard.

BUSES: ALL MORNING bus arrivals will stay the same (Existing Bus Area). ALL Duffy buses will stay the same for afternoon pick up (Existing Bus Area). The NEW CAR PARK/ BUS AREA will be used in the AFTERNOON for STEWART & SONS, COAST TO COUNTRY and SOUTH BUNDY BUS pick ups.

DROP OFF/ PICK UP: Just a friendly reminder the EGGMOLESSE and FITZGERALD STREET car parks have the ONLY TWO DESIGNATED areas for drop off/pick up. The Baptist Church is private property, the College tennis court car park and the spare land off Brother Hogan Drive are not designated drop off/pick up areas due to safety concerns.
