Car Parking and Student Drop Off / Pick Up

THE MAIN ENTRANCE & EGGMOLESSE STREET 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.

BACK ENTRANCE 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.
