travel & safety facilities
Next to the front entrance to the school is a large covered bike shed with places for over 40 bikes 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; with space available for visitors on official business to the school, as well as staff. The other internal carpark is for staff use only and may not be accessed during school hours for safety reasons.
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
Morning bus service commences at 8:10am. Afternoon pickup is the school bus bay between 3pm & 3:15pm.
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. WSB Coordinator: Suzanne Butler ph 410 0086.
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
The new 40km/h speed zone on Aberdeen Road was activated for the first time on 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.
