Visitors are advised to park outside the school grounds to maintain the safety of the students. The Staff Car Park gates have signs affixed indicating this information.
The staff car park is for staff vehicles only. The car park gates are closed to ensure the safety of our St Mary’s students.
Students who ride bikes or skateboards to school enter and leave via the parent pick-up gate. Bikes and scooters need to be walked into the school grounds and parked in the racks located adjacent to the Stage 3 classroom. Lists are maintained daily indicating methods of departure from school. Changes to normal organisation are added to lists on advice from parents or carers and communicated to students via notes for teachers
The School Student Transport Scheme (SSTS) gives eligible school students free or subsidised travel between home and school on NSW public transport.
Families need to live a minimum distance from the school to be eligible for a free school travel pass. The minimum distance varies according to the year/grade the student is enrolled in, in that calendar year:
The school bus bay is located on the southern side of the school opposite the ‘Sunrise on Turf’ shop.
Students are seated in their bus lines inside the school gates and escorted to their bus by the teacher on duty. Students' names are checked off upon leaving the school.
The majority of Hoof St (on the school side) is a bus zone. If you are planning to park on Hoof St, be sure to check the signs to ensure you are not in the bus bay.
