SmartRider Cards

College Parking / Student Drop Off / Pick Up

Parents are encouraged to make use of alternative drop-off and pick up areas, a number of which are indicated on College maps.  Under no circumstances use the City of Bayswater's car parks.  The City of Bayswater Ranger may undertake school parking patrols and issue infringements to those parents who are parking unlawfully. There is also visitor and disable bays available.

If it is absolutely necessary to pick up students from inside the College grounds, then we would ask you please:

  • Not to stop or pick up students in the through traffic lane.
  • No parking or driving through the staff car park.
  • No parking or driving through the car park of the City of Bayswater.
  • Observe the signage regarding no parking and no standing areas (buses require the turning space on return from excursion).
  • Not to leave your vehicle unattended.

These arrangements are for the safety of our students and your children and to avoid damage to parent and staff vehicles. Please see College maps for more details.

The City of Bayswater have a School Parking Brochure which is available here.
