Road Safety

Wakari School’s new Pick up Drop off system begins…

This week at Wakari School we are all about road safety.  Every family should have received an information package with everything you needed to about our new Pick up drop off area and Safe Meet Spots map last week.  This information, along with homework activity and colouring competition templates are all available on the school website.  Here are some reminders.

Use our Pick up Drop off area outside the Shetland St entrance morning or afternoon.  These are “no parking” areas at the times shown on the sign.  That means no waiting and no leaving your vehicle.  They’re places to pick up drop off and “GO”.  If your child isn’t ready for you, please exit and re-enter the area (it takes just 3 mins to go around the block via Forresbank and Mayfield – see the map on our website).  This gives others a chance to use your space.  Staff will supervise children here until 3.15pm but if you want to park and wait or come into the classroom, please use longer term parking nearby.

If you have older children, have a look at our new Safe Meet Spot map (below).  These are areas older children can walk to a short distance away from the school gate which helps to ease congestion and make pick up times less stressful for you.  Please read the map and discuss your after-school arrangement with your child and even do the short walk with them.
