Student Drop off – Only in the Bus Bay

Mar 21, 2023

Any time of day

Please only use the bus bay for any student drop offs or pick ups, not the school carpark. This is a Health and Safety consideration – thank you.

Here is information we published earlier this year:

We wish to ensure the safety of all students and pedestrians within our college car park and ‘Drop off & Pick up zones’. The vehicle entrance way to Garin College for student drop off and pick up has been designed to ensure student safety.

We have a special bay for buses to pick up and drop off students that has clearly defined and marked speed bumps throughout our car park areas. Within the bus bay there is a special zone marked ‘Drop off Zone’; this has been created especially for parents and caregivers to pick up and drop off their children. The speed limit in the drop off zone and school car park is 5 km p/h.

To access the ‘Drop off Zone’, you must enter the college main entrance, immediately turn left into the bus bay area, keep left and stop in the marked ‘Drop off Zone’. Using the ‘Drop off Zone’ will alleviate the need for your vehicle to enter the college main car park area. Entry to the ‘Drop off Zone’ must only be gained by turning into the bus bay from the college main entrance. Exit from the ‘Drop off Zone’ must only be accessed at the western side of the bus bay. Note, the traffic flow for cars in the bus bay area will be anti-clockwise.

If you need to drop off/pick up your child from school, please use the designated  ‘Drop off Zone’.

Our ‘Disabled Drop off Zone’ is located immediately outside the college office and may continue to be accessed as required by entering the college main car park area.

Walking and Cycling 

When crossing Champion Road, students must use the designated pedestrian crossing outside the college. 

Cycling to and from school; students must wear a cycle helmet, ensure visibility and follow NZ Road Code practice. Please be aware of the upgraded cycleways on Salisbury Road.

Bicycle Park, Students are to park their bike in the bicycle cage onsite and ensure their bikes are locked securely.
