Where can I park or drop-off my child?
Oban Avenue and Kertaweeta Avenue are the closest drop-off areas to Black Forest Primary School, with a “kiss-and-drop” on Oban Avenue. Please be aware that these areas experience a very high level of congestion at peak times. These areas are also regularly patrolled by City of Unley staff and SA Police for parking and driving infringements. A car park at 671 South Road is also available for school families.
Alternatively, you may wish to drop your child at Forest Avenue Reserve (the school oval) on Forest Avenue, and walk through the school to the main play area, or to park in surrounding streets such as Addison Road, Forest Avenue, Maude Street or Pleasant Avenue and walk with your child a short distance to school.
My child rides a bike. Where do they park it?
There is a bike shelter area on the Western side of the school (adjacent to the school gymnasium) where your child can park their bike during the school day. This shelter is not caged, therefore students will need to bring a bike lock to ensure it remains safe.
