Kelly Street entrance. We would ask that parents reinforce to children the need to be watchful when entering and exiting the school grounds. Pedestrians should use the footpath and avoid using the drive entrance when entering / leaving the school. There is walking access through Hodge Park via the back field. No vehicles are to drive onsite unless by arrangement with the school office. We have installed new fencing and gate systems so there is limited access for parent vehicles on to the main school site between the hours of 8.15amd and 3.15pm each day.
