Collecting students, parking and traffic



As there are two schools within close proximity of each other (San Sisto College and St Martin's) both Mayfield Road and Broadway Street carry a large volume of traffic each morning and afternoon. To cope with this traffic and ensure maximum safety for our children, the Brisbane City Council Traffic Branch, and ourselves, have combined to put certain procedures in place.

In Broadway Street - there is a two-minute pickup zone adjacent to the school.  This zone operates from 7am to 9am, and from 2pm to 4pm, and it is critical that the regulations be observed.  While this is a two-way street it is so narrow that we recommend that parents approach it only from Stanley Road to avoid children having to cross Broadway Street. Our staff supervises the children in a waiting space at Broadway Street and usher them out as their family car arrives. Parents should not park here to come into the grounds to collect children or see teachers.

A supervised school crossing exists for all those crossing Broadway Street.

In Mayfield Rd - The BCC has erected a bus lay-by to cater for both Council and Private buses.

A Supervised School Crossing exists in Mayfield Road in the morning and afternoons.

There is minimal parking available in the school grounds before or after school and the carpark in front of the Church should not be used as a turnaround.


We appreciate the co-operation of all parents and visitors in being respectful to our neighbours.
At no time park your car over any-part of a driveway.  

Do not block access for neighbours to enter or exit their property.
Use the supervised crossing carefully.  Keep children close and do not allow them to run ahead.
Please contact the Brisbane City Council should you experience any traffic or illegal parking concerns. 24/7 Ph: 3403 8888.​
