Getting to school

Ormiston Primary School has a relatively compact zone. We are a Travelwise school which means we are continuously working to improve road safety and reduce the number of vehicles driving to and from our school (and Community Campus) at peak times.

We also have a community lead Walking School Bus (WSB) programme. Contact admin@ormmistonprimary.school.nz to get involved as a WSB coordinator or to volunteer for other WSB roles.

Once our community campus is fully operational we will have over 6000 people movements each day across the schools. We want to minimize this as much as possible by encouraging our learners to walk or wheel to school. Parents who must pick up or drop off their children are respectfully asked to do so along Kerrykeel Road in the 2 minute drop off area to keep Hellianthus Avenue clear.
