An Independent Catholic Girls Secondary college - Day and Boarding

Where Ambition Meets Compassion


Strand Closure 30 October - 7 November NEW TRAFFIC ARRANGEMENTS IN PLACE

Due to planned Townsville City Council works taking place on the Strand, directly in front of the College from Tuesday 30 October -  Wednesday 7 November, we are asking parents/caregivers to assist with the following arrangements:

Student drop-offs and pick-ups

The Strand area directly in front of the College will not be accessible for vehicles during this time.

Morning drop-offs and afternoon pick-ups are to take place at the front of St Joseph’s Church (next to St Joseph’s Catholic School) on Fryer Street.  Access is via Oxley Street, around the back of St Joseph’s school and into Fryer Street. From here you will ONLY BE ABLE TO TURN RIGHT  onto the Strand.  Please refer to the map attached below.

This is a shared arrangement with St Joseph’s School, so please be conscious of this when using this area, particularly in the morning when both schools commence at 8.30am.  St Joseph’s School finishes at 2.50pm, which should mean there is time for traffic to clear before our finish at 3.15pm.

PLEASE DO NOT PARK in the parking bays in front of St Joseph's School as these are used by the school for their pick-up process for the children.

Please expect and plan for delays in your usual time frames for morning drop off and afternoon pick-up during this time.

Students will be able to walk from Fryer Street through the back of the church into the St Patrick’s College campus.

College Bus Service

For those students who use the College bus, the pick-up and drop off point will be a TEMPORARY BUS ZONE beside the oval of St Joseph's School (via Oxley Street).

We understand the inconvenience this may cause during this period of time and greatly appreciate your cooperation, vigilance and patience.

Please find below a copy of the latest Townsville City Council update outlining the planned works.

We will continue to provide you with updates as they are made available.
