Kia Ora Parents - Over the last 3 weeks, I have had a number of conversations with students and put reminders in the newsletter, about our students concerning behaviour on their bikes.
Our concerns are:
This week I have taken at least 2 complaints a day about students biking in an unsafe way. As a school, we are at the stage of reassessing whether biking to school is going to be a viable option moving forward. We appreciate biking to school is an excellent way for students to self-manage and promotes daily activity. We need your help to ensure that your child is following road rules and staying safe on their bikes.
My number one concern is about your child getting to and from school safely, as we have had so many near misses this week. Please have a conversation with your child regarding cycle safety.
Any continued unsafe behavior by any child will mean they will no longer be able to bike to school.
I appreciate your support, as I know nobody wants to see their child or any other child injured.
