Getting to and from school

Safety first! 

Student safety is our priority. We encourage the whole community to be safe travellers on their way to and from school. As a parent or carer, you are responsible for how your child gets to and from school. 

Plan ahead by discussing the following with your children:

  • safe travel routes
  • how to share the road safely
  • alternative arrangements for when unexpected things happen.

School entrances 

We are located on between Browley Street and the Illawarra Highway  in Moss Vale. We have 2 entrances to our school.

Main entrance - Browley Street 

  • Open 8:00am - 4:00pm
  • Main Office entry
  • Bus arrivals and departures

  • Walking and riding to school

Second entrance – Illawarra Highway 

  • Open 8:30am - 9:30am and 2:30pm - 3:30pm

Children walking and riding to school can access both entrances. We have covered bike racks located to the north of the covered outdoor learning area (COLA) where bikes and scooters can be safely stored during school time.
