Getting to and from School

If your child/ren are walking/biking/scootering to or from school can you please go over with them how to do this safely. Over the past few weeks we have had a number of reports of our children not being very safe when they are walking/biking/scootering to or from school. Below are some general tips.

How to stay safe when walking

  • Use pedestrian crossings or cross at traffic signals.
  • Stop and check at every driveway.
  • Walk on the footpath, close to the houses and away from the road.
  • Hold hands if walking with a young child near roads or in car parks.

Crossing the road, when there’s no pedestrian crossing

  • be patient and cross the road only when it’s safe to do so (it takes time for a vehicle to stop)
  • then use the kerb drill:
  1. Stop one step back from the kerb.
  2. Look and listen for traffic coming from all directions.
  3. If there is traffic coming, wait until it has passed and then look and listen for traffic again.
  4. If there is no traffic coming, walk quickly straight across the road.
  5. While crossing, look and listen for traffic, wherever it may come from.

When using a pedestrian crossing

  • Use official crossings where possible – in fact, if you’re within 20 metres of a pedestrian crossing, the law requires you to use it.
  • Check that approaching vehicles have seen you and can stop before you step out.
  • Cross as quickly as you are able.
  • For crossings with signals, only cross when the green person or message shows.

Kapa Haka Concert 2022

Come and see our tamariki as they come together for our final kapa haka performance of the year!

On the evening of Tāite, te 8 o Tīhema/Thursday 8 December at 6.30 pm, our wonderful kapa haka rōpū will be performing under our new canopy. We have missed out on our annual Tū Māia Festival due to Covid-19 so this is an opportunity for our tamariki to be able to finally stand on a stage and perform.

Feel free to bring a comfy camping chair.

We hope to see as many of our Silverdale whānau as possible on the night!

Wheels Safety Day

This week, Year 3 and 4 students had a blast learning all about bike and scooter safety. Students practiced putting on helmets correctly, how to check their bikes and scooters and played games where they followed different road rules. It was great to see so many students with bikes and scooters – now the weather is warmer, why not ride to school!
