Getting to School
We are recommending you drive the Douglas Crescent circuit to avoid the dangerous U turn near the gate at the bottom of Roberts Avenue. This will also mean less traffic at the crossing, making it safer for everyone!
Alternatively, you can drop off and pick up on Ray Street - at the top of the school - or near the green bridge on the Midland Highway, as both streets have School crossings.
The school has two school crossings controlled by supervisors. These are in Ray Street and Johnstone Street. The crossings are supervised at the following hours:
** Before School Ray Street 8.20am – 9.00am
Johnstone Street 8.15am – 9.00am
** After School Both Crossings 3.15pm – 3.55pm
Children are expected to obey the directions of the crossing supervisor at all times. The School Council, through the Principal and staff, is responsible for the conduct of students on the way to and from school, unless an adult accompanies them.
It is most important children are not encouraged to access cars in the middle of the road, or other inappropriate places. The crossing outside the school is to be used at all times by students and their parents.
Children must wear a helmet when riding a bicycle to and from school. Bikes are stored within the school grounds, and it is recommended that valuable bikes be locked.
Bus travel is available for some children who live out of town. This is co-ordinated through the Bus Co-ordinator at Castlemaine Secondary College (Junior Campus).
