We recommend that Parents instruct their children very carefully on the appropriate ways to travel to and from school. Special mention must be made in regard to Fairview Road which has an 80km/ph speed limit. The school runs “Keeping Ourselves Safe” and “Physical Safety” programmes as part of the Health programme which complements careful safety instructions from the home.
In accordance with the NZ Police guidelines, children 9 and over can bike to school. Because of the volume of traffic and speed we recommend that children be at least 11 before they cycle to school.
