resources & amenities NOT SELF ~ BUT SERVICE

staff facilities

MAIN OFFICE

The main office is the core to the efficient running of our school. The office team – Marie Dunn, Sally Thompson and Cushla Dyson deal with all phone calls, enquiries and much, much more. School uniforms and stationery can be ordered and bought here also.

STAFFROOM

An important area in the school for all staff to catch up with colleagues and to share morning tea and lunch. Coffee and tea is provided for all staff, visitors and volunteers, and is a hub of chatter and laughter most days. The view from the staffroom is one of the best in the world!

student health & medical facilities

MEDICAL ROOM

Located within the main complex this room contains two beds and a full first-aid cupboard to cope with all the usual everyday trauma and problems which seem to go along with being at school. Children who are not collected from the school grounds by 3:20pm are also brought here and supervised, as a safety measure. A call is placed to the parents to remind them they may have forgotten something!

LUNCHROOM

The lunchroom service is changing in 2014 - more details will be available soon.

travel & safety facilities

BIKE/SCOOTER SHED

Next to the front entrance to the school is a large covered bike shed with places for over 40 bikes and scooters to be locked securely to its structure. Students are taught road safety and there are annual skill and control classes which students are encouraged to attend.

ON-SITE CAR PARKING

The school has two internal parking areas, the main gate being located inside the Bus Bay on Aberdeen Road. There are three parking zones within that main area.

BUS BAY

The bus bay sits between the front pedestrian entrance and main carpark entrance on Aberdeen Rd. During drop-off and pick-up times, parents are requested not to park in this zone, but are welcome to drive through and drop off or collect their children.

SCHOOL BUS SERVICE 042

Morning bus service commences at 8:10am.

WALKING SCHOOL BUSES

CBS Wise Walkers is the official name of Campbells Bay School's walking bus. A great opportunity for children to get fit, help cut down the traffic jam at school, and to meet the people in their area. Parents assist, creating an enjoyable walk to school. There are four routes to school.

PATROLLED PEDESTRIAN CROSSING

Both before and after school the trained Year 6 road patrol monitors ensure safe passage across Aberdeen Road every school day. Dedicated and responsible monitors working alongside parents, are essential on an ever busy road with still many cars bringing children to and from school.

SPEED-LIMITED 40KM/H ZONE

Since 17 July 2007, the 40kmh zone operates in the morning from 8.25am until 8.55am and in the afternoon from 2.55pm until 3.15pm. The electronic signs clearly mark the zone. The zone is actively policed to ensure compliance. We are very grateful to the North Shore City Council and to the Police for their support of this safety enhancing programme.
