Students from Te Kura o Waima & Omanaia School had another productive day working together in our community on Monday the 19th of September.
In the second stage of our road safety promotion students along with locals Pia Wilcox, Gale Cassidy, Wye Hauraki, Waima Board Chair Dallas Williams, & Omanaia Principal Jon Smith spent another community focused day in the sun.
Before work started the local shelter looked a little tired & in need of some TLC.
Picking up rubbish was the first task of the day while Pia & Gale undertook some minor repairs to the shelter which has seen better days and others broomed down the surfaces to be painted. Then in was all painting hands on deck to put in some colourful yards and make over another bus shelter to spread an important word ‘slow down for kids’.
Some of the students debated what designs are the coolest and should/shouldn’t make it onto the shelter but all in all the ‘kaupapa of road safety’ was the priority and so as long as it was BRIGHT BRIGHT BRIGHT it was a go!
Keep an eye out in Term 4 for the last stage – a whole heap of brightly coloured posts to let drivers know where our tamariki get on the bus.
Mini bus stop posts :)! Thanks for all the support Community.
Thanks again to sponsors Bunnings Kaikohe, Dulux Paint, & AK Logging for the paint & materials.
