To reduce the risk of accidents around our school, all parents are encouraged to read and follow these guidelines. It is also important that other people who may take your child to and from school (eg grandparents, babysitters) are made aware of this information.

Student & parent safety is our priority

School Crossing Warden

The School has three Crossing Wardens working in the busy streets around Rostrata Primary, every morning and afternoon on school days (Rostrata Avenue, near Kirn Close; Glenmoy Avenue, near Prendwick Way and Collins Road, near Bicheno Way).  Please encourage your children to use these crossings.

  • Follow the Wardens' directions.
  • Wait for two whistles before crossing.
  • Students must walk their bikes and scooters across the crossing.

Walking, Cycling, Scooting to School

In line with our commitment to the Department of Transport's 'Your Move' initiative,  we encourage children to walk, ride and scoot to school to reduce traffic congestion. Bike and scooter racks are provided at the Concraige Way entry and adjacent to the Drive-Through accessed by Rostrata Ave.

  • Students must wear bike helmets when riding/scooting to and from school.
  • Students must walk their bikes or scooters once they enter the school grounds.

Afternoon Pick-up

One Way Traffic in Concraige Way

The Drive-through

The entry to the Drive-Through is via Rostrata Avenue and the exit is into Glenmoy Avenue.  It is a one-way road.
