Students travelling home from school by bus are dismissed at 3:00pm as no buses depart from school before 3:00pm. Students are supervised as they wait to board the bus at the end of the school day.
Students travelling by bus are expected to be seated and to obey the bus driver's instructions. The bus driver can refuse to transport students who misbehave on the bus or while waiting for the bus.
TRAVELLING HOME FROM SCHOOL
Please confirm with your child/children each morning, by what means they are to travel home after school. Often there are confused and upset children in the office after school because they cannot remember or are unsure of instructions. Another option might be, when signing your child’s homework diary in the evening, to write down how they will be travelling home from school the next day.
PARKING AND TRANSPORTATION OF CHILDREN
Leschenault has provided two “Kiss & Drop” zones for delivering and collecting students, without parking. One is located on Challenger Rise and the other is at the front of the school. These zones are designated for this purpose only.
If parents wish to park and walk in with their children, you may use the designated parking areas provided.
Both of the “Kiss & Drop zones” are supervised each day, after school, until 3:20pm. This ensures the safe departure of our students from school grounds.
THESE AREAS ARE DESIGNATED AS A DRIVE-THROUGH COLLECTION POINTS
When utilising the available parking bays at the front of the school, parents are requested to reverse park for the safety of the children.
Parents may park in the designated school bays near the church, the basketball courts nearest the church and the Pre Primary and Kindergarten classrooms. Parents are also asked to be aware that some after school training sessions are conducted on the courts. There are some bays outside the Church that are designated for Parishioners during the hours of 7:30 to 10:00am daily. Please be respectful of our Parish family and observe these times.
The car park at the eastern side of the school is designated for Staff only. Please refrain from parking in this area. Parents may park in this area only after 3:30pm daily if children are involved in training for sports. Please be aware that these facilities and rules apply for the children's safety and not for the convenience of parents.
