Getting to and from School

Kintara Drive has clearway signs posted on the side opposite the school. The clearway operates from 8:00 am- 9:00 am and 2:30 pm- 3:30 pm Monday to Fridays.


Clearway signs mean NO PARKING on Kintara Drive on the other side of the road.


Do the loop down Colwill Road, turning left into Spargo Road and then first left into Claverdon Drive. Continue up Claverdon, turning left into Kintara Drive and parking on the school side. There is an alternate drop-off point on Colwill Road at the Room 16/17 entrance.


Cycling to and from school is the responsibility of parents. Children must be Year 5 upwards and understand the rules of cycling.


Safety helmets must be worn riding to and from school and the normal road codes apply.


Parents will be consulted immediately if children are seen breaking rules or riding bicycles that do not meet road worthiness standards.


Students are encouraged to ride scooters to and from school and during intervals at school. Safety helmets and other safety gear are a very good idea but not compulsory. Scooter riders wear shoes.


Other children should not ‘borrow’ your child’s scooter to play on it. Scooter riders need to respectful of other footpath users and keep their distance, slow down and not speed around corners

Road Safety

Students are trained by the NZ Police to be wardens and are on duty for 25 minutes before school and approximately 15 minutes after school in the following place:


· Kintara Drive outside the school


A teacher or trained parent supervises the Kintara crossing.

Parents and Caregivers, BE KIND, CAREFUL and CARING in


· the way you use and respect the patrolled crossings


· your parking in the right places


Cars MUST NOT be brought into the staff parking area to drop off or collect children.


Please use the footpaths. The teachers’ carpark has a footpath round the edge of it so no one needs to walk across it to get into the school.
