Health and Safety

Arriving to and going home from school

 

It is parents’ responsibility to ensure that children arrive safely and are collected from school

 

each day at 3.00pm. We have a 40 kilometre speed limit surrounding Oranga Primary and

 

ask that parents be mindful of children hopping in and out of cars particularly on peak hours

 

of drop off and pick up.

 

 

Road Patrol

 

Each day from 3pm - 3.15pm we have road patrollers providing safe crossings on both

 

Oranga Ave and Rangipawa Rd. We also have road patrol operating on Rangipawa Rd in

 

the mornings from 8.30am - 8.50am. If you are crossing these roads whilst the road

 

patrollers are out please help us to set a good example for children and use the crossings

 

provided.

 

 

Walking School Bus

 

Walking school buses are free, parent run and operate in association with Auckland

 

Transport. All walking school bus routes have been hazard checked by an Auckland

 

Transport representative and cleared as a safe route to walk to school.

 

If you live nearby and are interested in either having your child join a walking school bus

 

and/or assisting as a parent volunteer please email: walkingschoolbus@oranga.school.nz

 

 

Parking

 

When parking on the roads surrounding Oranga Primary please be sure not to park illegally

 

on yellow lines as these are there for everyone’s safety.

 

 

Accidents

 

There is a sick bay located behind the school office where children will be attended to if they

 

have an accident or become unwell while at school. Administration staff are first aid

 

qualified and attend refresher courses when necessary. (All of our full time teachers are

 

also first aid qualified). All minor incidents/ accidents will be looked after by the

 

administration team in the sick bay. If a child needs to be sent home due to illness parents

 

will be contacted or if very serious an ambulance will be called and parents contacted.

 

 

Hearing, Vision and Dental

 

During the year we have visits from hearing, vision and dental vans. Children are checked

 

periodically and parents will be advised by these medical agencies if their child requires

 

further attention or a followup appointment.

 

Protection from the Sun

 

During terms one and four it is compulsory for children to wear their school sunhat when

 

they are outdoors. Parents, we ask that you provide sunscreen for your child during these

 

terms.

 

 

Water Only

 

We ask that children only bring water to school in their drink bottles. Please do not send

 

your child to school with juice or fizzy drinks as it will be confiscated and sent back home.

 

The only exception we make to this is through the Fonterra milk in School programme where

 

the school provides a carton of milk for every child every day (if children would like to

 

participate).
