Safe Use Of Our School Drop Off / Pick Up Zones

Our utmost concern in these areas is for the safety, health and wellbeing of our students.  Drivers displaying courtesy and patience will help us all achieve this goal.

Local government parking regulations are an act of parliament, implemented by the local council and monitored regularly by both the Police and the Charles Sturt City Council.  The school does not make the rules for these areas and have no influence over any fines issued.

To encourage the safe use of these areas, please keep the following in mind…

  1. Drop off / Pick Up Zones are in use from 8am - 9.30am and 2.30pm - 4pm.
  2. The council actively monitors this area and issue fines to those drivers who are not following the rules, especially the two minute limit (have you noticed the large sign on the Military Road fence).
  3. When entering the line please remember: 
  1. You must enter the line from the back, you are not to drive along and see a space and quickly turn into it. 
  2. As per council directives please do not do a U turn to enter or exit the line.
  3. Enter the line at a slow speed, remembering that school zones are 25km.
  1. Once you are in the line you only have two minutes in this line to wait for your child.
  2. Drivers are not allowed to exit their car. 
  3. Ensure you are concentrating when you move your car forward in the line as many students go to the back of cars to put bags in car boots and the students themselves can be inattentive, drop things bend over to pick things up, etc.

Thank you for your help with the safety, health and wellbeing of our students.

Regards,

Damian Weeks
Principal

Lenten

In the past, we have had a very strong concert band program, which requires woodwind and brass instrumentation. Due to students moving on, we are now seeking woodwind and brass players to fill up the tuition program. We would love to have Clarinet, Saxophone, Trumpet and Trombone players join our program, to start tuition and work towards joining our concert band. 

There is a multitude of research which shows that learning an instrument enhances all academic learning areas and works all areas of the brain. Dr Anita Collins has done a fantastic TED talk on music education and its effects on overall learning. 

If learning a brass or woodwind instrument is something your child might be interested in doing, please head to the Star of the Sea website In this section you will find our instrumental policy, instrument hire prices, tuition agreement form with prices and instrument hire form. 

If you would like to contact me further regarding information about our program, please e-mail me at kcox@star.catholic.edu.au

Thank you,

Kirsty (Replacement music teacher)
