Silverdale school is a Travelwise school which means that as a school we will aim to achieve a reduction in the number of vehicles in and around our school during school hours and will actively promote road safety with our school community. Our lead teacher; Alex Franklin has a team of year 5 and 6 students who work in the school to promote road safety often at monthly assemblies. Competitions are often used to promote safe cycling as was done in term 1 or to encourage more parents and students to use sustainable transport ie walking, buses, bikes or scooters. The stop drop and go zone has been successful in reducing the pressure at peak times in our school car park. Our school was recently awarded a silver award at the Travelwise evening hosted by Auckland Transport so this was a good indication that our school is working towards being sustainable.
