Beaconsfield Baptist Church

The College has an informal arrangement with the Church to use their car park as a pick up and drop off zone and for licenced Year 12 students to park their cars during the day. The Church is happy for this arrangement to continue but accessing this car park is at the owner’s own risk. We thank the Beaconsfield Baptist Church for the generosity in allowing College families to use their facility.

 

Beaconsfield Fast Fuel

Parents are reminded that picking up students from Beaconsfield Fast Fuel that is across the road from the Beaconsfield Campus is not allowed by the management of the service centre. This is unsafe and the management is concerned about the OH&S risks to students and their customers. Parking at Beaconsfield Fast Fuel is restricted to their paying customers. The management of Beaconsfield Fast Fuel has alerted local council officials of this practice and those failing to follow the management instructions may be subject to fines.

 

Visitor Parking

Parents visiting the Beaconsfield campus for meetings with school staff are now able to park in the area directly opposite the College Hospitality Centre. Please note however that these parks are not to be used for dropping off or picking up of students. Parking on the opposite side of this area is reserved for College Vehicles.
