School Drop-off and Pick-up
Morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up are important times for student safety at Bardon State School.
On Simpsons Road we have a Stop, Drop, Go zone to support daily school drop-off and pick-up. This area, marked with council signs, is a 2 minute zone each school day from 8am – 9am and 2.30pm – 3.30pm. Our school community must adhere to the two minute stopping time limits on school days.
Student safety is of the upmost importance. Maintaining a smooth, free flowing pick-up zone will ensure students can safely enter and leave school each day, our wish for every student in our school community.
Alternatives to using the Stop, Drop and Go zone:
If you wish to park your car for longer than 2 minutes, for example to walk your child into the school grounds, please use the street parking outside of the two minute zone or the carpark at the base of the school.
If you would like to add a little movement into your day, park-n-stride from Bowman Park, an active way to travel to school. It's a beautiful walk along the creek in Bardon Esplanade, a lovely way to start or end the school day, build road safety skills with your child and independence for older children.
Bardon State School proudly promotes active travel to school with the support of the Brisbane City Council's Active School Travel (AST) program. The program encourages students, parents, carers and teachers to leave the car at home and actively travel to school.
Information about the program can be found at Our community page - Comunity partnerships.
