These projects are well managed and the school is liaising with the builders and Parramatta Council. We are aware that there will be traffic and pedestrian changes in forthcoming weeks and to ensure the safety of our students we are proposing some different exit strategies at the end of the school day.
1. Students should avoid using the western side of Smith Street to access the Parramatta Railway Station, Westfield’s and the Bus Interchange. This means that students should use the school side of Smith Street on which APHS is located going to and from school.
2. To avoid congestion at the Smith Street crossing and Parramatta Station students in Year 7 and 8 will be dismissed from school at 2:45pm giving them time to clear the crossings and station before Year 9 and 10 leave school at 2:55pm. Senior students will continue to leave at 3:35 pm as normal. It is anticipated this will commence next Monday (24 August).
If you could discuss these safety measures with your son/ daughter it will assist the school in maintaining a safe environment for all students at Arthur Phillip High School.
