    Pick-up procedures:

    Children collected via drive-through:

    The drive-by “Pick-Up Point” area is adjacent to the Calvary Community Centre.

    There will be a teacher on duty at the pick-up point, moving cars along and ensuring the safety of the students. If your child is not at the pick-up point on your arrival you may need to drive around and re-enter the queue.

    It is the parent’s responsibility to inform their child they will be collected from the quick pick-up. An email to the class teacher to notify them is recommended for the little ones.

     

    Children Who Are Physically Collected by Their Parents

    Children are seated in allocated class areas under the western hanger at the Western Carpark from 3pm. Each child is asked to say “good afternoon” to the teacher to indicate they are now in the care of their parent or caregiver.

    Bus children and those with siblings in the Middle and Senior school remain seated until 3.15pm. At this time, the bus children proceed to the buses, and the children left remain in the care of the duty teacher.
