A Uniting Church coeducational independent day and boarding school in Marion, South Australia
Early Learning to Year 12

Traffic Management - Edition 3 - 2019

We have been asked by some of our close neighbours to please not move their bins from the road on Thursdays, which is their bin collection day. With cars parked in close proximity to the School throughout the day, bins left on the roadway can be reached and emptied by the trucks. If put back on the kerb with a car parked in front, bins are being overlooked, much to the disappointment of residents. Thanking you in advance for your consideration.

Automatic Gates

For improved security around our entry/exit roads, some of you will have noted that we now have automatics gates operating on Gates 1 and 4, similar to those in Boarding (Gates 5 and 6).

During term time:

  • Gate 1 (by the railway line); Monday to Friday - automatically opens at 6.30 am and closes at 7.00 pm; Saturday - opens 7.00 am and closes 6.30 pm; Sunday - closed all day (note: these times vary marginally around school holidays).
  • Gate 4 (Barry’s Lane, towards the Sports and Swimming Centre); every day (except end of year School closure) - automatically opens at 4.45 am and closes at 10.30 pm.
  • If you are still in the School grounds after your exit gate has auto-closed, it will auto-open via a vehicle sensor as you approach.
  • Eventually Gate 2, (the main School gate) will be automated but for now they will remain open as they do now.

Bus Audit

As you would have seen on School Star and in the Daily Notices, we are currently reviewing our School bus services to ensure we are providing the best possible routes and timetables for our families. Our Business Office and Development staff are in the second week of recording students’ names and their year groups to build up the profile of bus travel to and from the School. Everything is going smoothly and we thank all bus travelling students for assisting us in this process. The audit has been extended until Friday 15 March.
