Loreto Normanhurst parents breaking the law during drop-off and pick-up


“The design refinements have resulted in revising the enrolment staging in association with the approved student population,” she said. “The modification does not change the approved school population or approved parking numbers.”

Ugonotti said improvements to student drop-off and pick-up and an upgrade of parking were completed last October.

“The modification will have no additional impact to the surrounding road network,” she said.

She said staff supervised school pick-up and drop-off on all internal roads, while traffic controllers were deployed on public roadways for major school events.

“Loreto Normanhurst works with skilled traffic engineers to review the management and operation of its pick-up and drop-off to ensure updated operational improvements are regularly considered and implemented as recommended by external advisors,” she said.

The new boarding house is a key part of the school’s 30-year master plan.


The council wants Loreto to stick to the conditions imposed by the Independent Planning Commission of NSW when it approved the redevelopment in 2021.

It also wants a review of the impact of the school’s Saturday sport activities on parking and upgrades of roads bordering the school.

“All traffic-related infrastructure including student pick-up/drop-off facilities and parking should be in place prior to an increase in student numbers to alleviate congestion and safety issues,” a spokesman said.

Ugonotti said the school took pride and great care in maintaining open, honest and collaborative relationships with its neighbours.

“Loreto Normanhurst continues to communicate with parents, staff, and students about the importance of avoiding parking in streets surrounding the school,” she said.

NSW Police said it patrols high-traffic areas to ensure drivers comply with road rules. “This would include school zones during drop-off and pick-up times,” a police spokesman said.

However, dozens of residents have submitted objections to the Planning Department about Loreto’s building plans.

Traffic chaos during around schools is an ongoing source of tension between schools and residents in other areas, with police deployed to monitor parents at SCEGGS Darlinghurst in response to complaints from its neighbours.
