Parent Information - FAQ

Mobile phones

Written permission must be provided from a Parent/Caregiver if they need their child to bring a phone to school. They must be handed into the office where it is kept securely, prior to 8.50 and collected after 3.00pm.


We encourage cyclists (bicycle and scooter) with helmets secured correctly. Any younger children riding to school should be closely accompanied by an adult. Cycles and scooters are not to be ridden in the school grounds and should be stored in the designated bike and scooter stands.

School Donations

Target Road School has opted into the Donation Scheme for the 2021 school year.

This means we will receive $150 per student from the government as payment for the year in exchange for not asking parents for donations.

Car Parks

Target Road School is situated on a very busy main road and for the safety of our children, families and staff, we urge you to park along neighbouring streets and walk your child to school.

Please use the designated controlled street crossing and when you need to cross the roads.

Health and Safety

To ensure children are safe at school we ask the following:

DROP OFF: We recommend dropping children off between 8.30 and 8.45am. This ensures they have enough time to put their belongings away and catch up with friends. Children who are dropped off prior to 8.30 will be asked to go to the barn which is unsupervised. Children who are regularly dropped off early may get asked to enrol their child in After School Care.

PICK UP: All children must understand that school finishes at 3.00pm, and parents need to ensure there is a plan for pick up. All children who have not been picked up are asked to come to the office so we can call home. PLEASE help us, and pick up your child on time. Walking is a great option, as there are many nearby options for parking.

Outside these hours, there is no adequate supervision

If you are arriving late (after 9am) or need to collect your child early for any reason, you must sign in/out at the office first, before going to class. You will be given a printout from the tablet for the teacher.


The Library is open from 9.00am until 3.00pm Monday - Thursday.

Children are welcome to visit the library at morning tea and lunchtimes where a duty teacher will visit the library as part of their area to supervise. It is often a safe, quiet place to visit if new children are feeling overwhelmed or in need of some peaceful time. Classes can visit the library at least once a week or as needed.

Lost Property

All lost property is placed in a large mobile rack situated in the hall foyer. It is available for children and adults to look through before, during and after school.

Lunch Eating

All children eat their morning tea and lunch in their classroom and are supervised by their teacher for the last 10 minutes of the respective break time. All rubbish and uneaten food are taken home. We ask that children do not bring sugary foods (lollies, chocolate, juice drinks) in their lunchboxes. Children may not share food with others due to spreading of germs, as well as food allergies. We have children in our school who are severely allergic to nuts, and ask that parents keep nut products in children’s lunchboxes to an absolute minimum.
