There has been lots of media coverage of March madness on Auckland roads, now everyone is back at work and school and now universities are in session. We have our own version thereof with the closure of Wapiti Avenue for the next stage of the Hunua pipeline for Watercare. I really want to thank parents for the very positive response we have had to the road closures and to the alternate drop off zones for girls. While these are beyond our control, Watercare has made every effort to try to manage the situation so as to minimise negative impact on the College.
One of the temporary solutions they were able to obtain for us was to have pedestrian access at the Wheturangi end of the sports field; students will be able to enter the school via Wheturangi Road for the length of time Wapiti Avenue is closed. We ask that you are very respectful of our neighbours over this period of time; in the past the actions they found most concerning were when College parents parked in or over their driveways, or parked on yellow lines. We work hard to be good neighbours, and all future developments in the College rely on the good will of our neighbours. We look forward to your support with this.
Next week we have oral reporting evenings for parents across all three schools; we are looking forward to answering your queries and to giving you lots of feedback on how your daughters have handled Term 1. Please be aware that parking will be at a premium with the Wapiti Avenue works and that you may need to allow a little more time for parking.
Mrs Lynda Reid
