Pick Ups at Metro Park Carpark by the cricket nets for Children in Team Tui

Team Tui will be walking down to Metro Park Carpark by the cricket nets at the end of each day so parents/caregivers can pick their children up. Pickups can be made via the car or on foot. Parents/caregivers picking their children up in the car will wait in the car and the children will go to the car. Parents/caregivers waiting at Metro Park Carpark by the cricket nets will maintain social distancing of 2m.

The plan for the Team Tui children who are being picked up from Metro Park Carpark by the cricket nets will be that some teachers will walk them down to Metro Park Carpark by the cricket nets, leaving school at 2.45pm. The children who aren’t being picked up from Metro Park (the ones who bike, scooter or have pre-arranged pick up points off site not at Metro Park) will be supervised in a classroom by one teacher and dismissed at 3pm to go home.

Team Tui children who have younger siblings will go to the classroom and collect their younger siblings at 2.35pm/2.40pm in time to all walk down to Metro Park together with the teachers and the rest of Team Tui.
