We are a Gold Travelwise School - Awarded in November 2019.
Travelwise is an ongoing programme at Waitakere aiming to decrease congestion at the school gate and therefore improve the safety for all students.
The benefits of Walking to School:
Students are given the opportunity to develop road safety skills
Reducing car trips to school
Students have fun wlaking and get fit while socialising with their friends.
What are the Travelwise initiatives at Waitakere:
Two daily bus routes
Kiss, drop and drive zone located on Anzac valley road
Active walking school bus routes
Park and Walk from Waitakere train station
Student leadership groups - Travelwise leaders, Bus monitors, Walking monitors and Road patrols
Travelwise programmes are integrated into learning in all areas of the school
Close partnership working with Auckland transport
Walking school bus:
Can you volunteer to walk once a week? We always need more adult walkers to help support the walking school bus. Please leave your name and contact details at the school office if you can help.
