New P2 Parking Zone
You will have noticed that the bus stop parking area is now a P2 zone between 8.30 - 9am and afterschool from 3 - 3.30pm. This means that there is a 2 minute time limit on parking in this space at these times. I’ve already noted how many more cars can come and go as most drivers are already observing the new signage. If you want to accompany your child into their class in the morning, or linger for conversations with other parents afterschool, remember to park further away.
The bus stop operates from 9am until 3pm, every school day. Please don’t park here before 3pm, as often our buses don’t return from trips until the last minute. We’ll see lots of bus traffic next week with Kūkupa Year 5s and Year 6s heading out to camp on Monday and Kākā and Kūkupa Year 4s going on day trips. Swimming continues every Tuesday and Whānau Kākā students attend technology every Wednesday, usually not returning until 3pm.

- Skills training area at the Vogelmorn Bike Track!
We have recently raised funds to lay an asphalt cycling track around Vogelmorn Park! The track is scheduled to be completed by early March. This community initiative has been organised by parents from Ridgway and Brooklyn schools and members of the Kaka Project, in conjunction with Ridgway School.
We have also raised money via grants and the Ridgway School Board of Trustees to purchase approximately 50 bikes for the school and 200 helmets - one for each child!
We now want to make this into a next level community facility and enhance the cycling track by adding an awesome cycling skills training area and a pump track, which is why we need your help!
Our aim is to create a fantastic biking facility that can be used in and out of school hours by all children in our community. Please see the givealittle page for more information and help us if you can!
Juicies will continue to be sold at lunchtimes on Wednesdays and Fridays ($2). This money supports our students attending camp.
