Students and parents at Holy Family School have been preparing for the start of a crossing point monitoring trial on Aubrey Road.
Queenstown Lakes District Council’s school travel plan coordinator Kirsty Barr ran induction days last week ahead of official monitoring at the crossing point outside of Holy Family, which began today (Monday June 19).
Kirsty said that there will be a parent and year seven or eight student at the crossing every morning between 8.30 and 8.55am.
“The volunteers can help cross the kids and the senior students will stay on one side only. It may lead to other things but this is a start. The parent community really want something safer there,” Kirsty said.
