Road safety outside school

7 February 2023

Kia ora Parent and Caregivers

We encourage students to walk to school, bike or scooter. Helmets and bike locks are compulsory for all bikes and scooters.

If your child needs to cross Butley Drive, they must use the traffic light pedestrian crossing outside Wakaaranga School, or the traffic island at the Glenmore Road end of Butley Drive.

If you need to drop off or pick up your child, please arrange a suitable meeting place away from the school grounds, and preferably not on Butley Drive. The FCI bus bay may be used after 3 pm once the school buses have departed.

Please do not

  • use the staff car parks

  • instruct your child to run across Butley Drive to you

  • run with your child across Butley Drive

  • park illegally on the broken yellow lines outside of school or in the ‘no parking’ clearway zone on Butley Drive

Thank you for supporting us to keep all of our students safe.

Kind regards

Tamara Jones

Principal/ Tumuaki
