Traffic Safety and Auckland Council Proposal
Click here to read the AT Safety Notice
The school is very concerned about the level of road safety, particularly at the start of a school day when students are dropped off.  Auckland Council has advised that parking enforcement officers will patrol at random days to enforce safe stopping.  Fines are typically $60 for illegal parking, such as parking on bus stops or yellow lines or double parking.  We are keen to ensure that our students are safe but do not wish to see parents being ticketed unnecessarily.

We ask that you help with the following:
•    Drop students off well before 8:40 am and at least 100 m away from any school entrance.
•    Arrange to collect your student from the same pick up point, well away from any bus stops.
•    Please note that the school staff car parks are not a drop-off zone.
