Start of the year essentials

Drop-off in the morning
Joy Davis

Drop off time for all year groups is from 8:10 to 8:25

The Main Primary Entrance

1. Car

  • Option 1 - Drive through Drop off
    • Parents should follow the directions of the traffic wardens, security staff and ISH primary staff during these times.
    • Children should have all their belongings ready so that they are able to say goodbye and leave their vehicles promptly.
    • Parents should remain in their cars in the drop off zone.
  • Option 2 - Park and Walk
    • Park your car in the public parking and walk in with your child. We ask that all pedestrians wear a face mask on the campus. 
    • Older children can be dropped off outside the school campus and walk-in by themselves.

2. Pedestrians 

  • Walk-in, drop off students in front of the Primary building and walk back out (2-way path)
  • If you feel that your child might find it difficult to say goodbye we recommend that you park your car in the public parking and walk your child to the drop off point in front of the primary building.

3. Bikes can enter campus directly from the cut-through from Laan van Meerdervoort

  • Enter through the school gates and follow the bike path to the right. 
  • Parents on bikes should drop students at the front of the Primary school and cycle out, following the one-way system. 
  • Students will park bikes in the Primary bike parking, or if entering through the Hungry Mind gate, bikes can be parked there.

4. The Hungry Mind gate 

The Hungry Mind gate is the gate at the back of the school, that can be accessed by walking past the Hungry Mind Community Centre, entrance on Wijndaelerweg. The Hungry Mind gate will be open for Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 students every morning from 8:10 to 8:25. We encourage your child(ren) to use this gate as much as possible to avoid congestion in the front of the school.

Siblings must be dropped off during the oldest primary child's time slot.  All primary children will enter the school through the primary entrance unless they are arriving through the Hungry Mind gate.
