Year 12 and 13 students may apply to drive to school.
These rules apply to all students who drive a vehicle to Woodford House. The aim is to ensure the safety of drivers, passengers, and other road users, and to promote courtesy and respect towards our neighbours. They apply to all students, including boarders who have their own vehicles at school.
The ability to bring a vehicle to school is regarded as a privilege. This privilege may be withdrawn by Woodford House if a student infringes any of these Student Vehicle Guidelines or any relevant statutory requirements, while driving to or from school or a Woodford House activity.
All students who apply to drive a vehicle to school must bring their licence to be photocopied at the Administration Office when they complete a driver request form or when they change the status of their licence; from restricted to full. The driving permit is to be displayed on the dashboard at all times when the car is parked in the Woodford House grounds. A Driver Request Form (available from the Administration Office) must be filled out annually and signed by a parent or caregiver.
Members of the public who complain about student driving or parking will be encouraged to lodge a complaint with the Police either directly or via the *555 system.
Year 13 boarders may bring a motor vehicle to school and if they have their full licence they may also carry passengers if they have written permission from their parent/caregiver and the parent/caregiver of the intended passengers. Car keys are to be handed to the House Supervisor.
Year 12 and 13 day students may bring a motor vehicle to school. If they have their full licence they may also carry passengers if they have written permission from their parent/caregiver and the parent/caregiver of the intended passengers. If caught abusing the privilege, the privilege may be withdrawn.
