Getting to and from school safely

As a parent or carer, it’s your responsibility to get your child to and from school safely. Student safety is our priority.

Keep our school community safe by:

  • driving and parking safely, even if it means parking further away and walking the rest of the way to school
  • being a good role model
  • never calling your child from across the road
  • using the safest place to cross the road.

Subsidised school travel

Transport for NSW provides subsidies to assist school students.

  • The School Student Transport Scheme provides eligible students with free or subsidised travel on public transport between home and school.
  • The School Drive Subsidy may help towards the costs of driving children to school if you live in an area where there is no public transport.

 

Pedestrian safety at Marsden High School

The beginning and end of the school day are busy times for pedestrians and vehicles around Marsden High School.

To assist with keeping our students safe, students must enter and exit the school grounds using the following gates:

  • Gate 1- the “hall gate”
  • Gate 4 - main school entrance pedestrian gate
  • Gate 6 –“F Block gate”
  • Gate 8 – Brush Road main gate with care – currently this is a space shared by cars and pedestrians. The pedestrian gate at Brush Road will be available from Term 2 2020 onwards.

Winbourne St driveway entrances are for vehicles only.

Students must take care when moving around the school, in areas shared by pedestrians and vehicles.

 

Drop off and pick up areas at Marsden HS

1.       Kiss and Ride zones

There are two ‘Kiss and Ride’ zones located on Winbourne Street.

One is between the school’s bus gate and Ermington Public School.

The other is between the pedestrian crossing and the main school driveway entrance.

Kiss and Ride Zones are designed for your convenience and for student safety.

Designed for quick entry and exit, these zones minimise congestion and risk when used properly by all parents and carers.

These zones operate under the same conditions as ‘No Parking’ zones, which means you may stop to drop off or pick up students for a maximum of 2 minutes.

Drivers are required to remain in, or within 3 metres of, their vehicle.

If no spaces are available, you cannot queue on the road way or in any other zones while waiting for a space. You will need to drive away and park elsewhere, only returning when there is a space to pull up.

To avoid congestion in Winbourne Street we encourage parents and carers to consider using Brush Road at the back of the school, for student drop off and pick up.

 

2.       Parking areas

The beginning and end of the school day are busy times for pedestrians and vehicles on Winbourne Street.

Park safely and legally, even if it means walking further to the school gate.

Never park in or near a bus stop or bus zone and do not drop students off in the bus turning bay. Ryde Council rangers regularly monitor the bus zone and bus turning area as these are ‘No Stopping’ zones.

To avoid congestion in Winbourne Street we encourage parents and carers to consider using Brush Road at the back of the school, for student drop off and pick up.

 

Bus safety at Marden HS

To assist with keeping our students safe, a teacher is on bus duty in the afternoon.

  • When waiting for a bus, students must wait in the flagpole area.
  • The teacher on duty will announce the bus numbers as they arrive.
  • When your bus number is announced, move towards the “bus gate” (Gate 2) and wait in line.
  • Only move to the bus stop when directed to, by the teacher on duty. This will occur when the bus has come to a standstill.
  • When getting off the bus, remember to wait until the bus has gone, then choose a safe place to cross the road.

 

Bicycle and scooter safety at Marsden HS

Students who ride a bike or scooter to school are expected to be safe riders by:

  • wearing a correctly fitted bicycle helmet – it’s the law
  • watching out for cars entering or leaving driveways
  • giving pedestrians right of way on footpaths
  •  using the” F Block gate” (Gate 6) or Brush Road pedestrian entrance (Gate 9) to enter and exit the school grounds
  • walk bikes and scooters within school grounds.
  • storing and locking their bike in the racks provided.
