Traffic and Road Safety

Dear Parents

With increased construction and school growth, there are ongoing increased traffic demands on Reading Street and East Street. The Board and leadership team are currently working with the team from The Orchards and the South Wairarapa District Council on ideas to manage this to ensure children’s safety. However, it also involves all our parents, children and our wider community doing their part too.

We ask that:

* Parents take time to talk to and practise with their child/ren their route to school and crossing busy roads. This is especially important for walkers and cyclists.

* Everyone, please be aware that there is large construction traffic on Reading Street. Parents and children need to be extremely careful during pick up and drop off times.

* All drivers lower their speed around the school.

* Everyone crosses at the crossing or walk across the road beyond the diamonds painted on the road safely. Ie: not directly around the bus and hall area or close to the crossing.

* No parking or stopping on the yellow lines near the crossing.

If we all work together and remind each other it will make a difference. We appreciate your support in helping us to keep everyone safe.
