Recently AT monitored the before and after school pick up parking issues around our school. They have made suggestions below to try and make Russell St safer for the children.
Leaving the car at home means that your child can try walking, scootering or cycling to school. Or they could hop on the Walking School Bus from Patuone Ave. If you have to drive, park a little away from the school and let you child walk down Russell St. This will help reduce congestion outside school and keep our children safe.
This term parking officers will be on patrol outside our school to issue tickets to those who are illegally parked. Parking rules help protect our children and keep them safe. Drivers who park illegally put our kids at risk.
These parking offences are detailed in the New Zealand Road Code.
