Pupils learn to walk this way Safety first: Senior constable Adele White talks road safety with, from left: Jacob Watson, 9, Lucy Ashley, 10, and Katelyn Varga, 9. Photo: NICOLA WILLIAMS By NICOLA WILLIAMS Busy arterial routes are no excuse for children not walking to school. That's the mind frame police are aiming to develop by teaching students how to use sig- nalled crossings safely. Youth education senior constable Adele White took Howick Pri- mary students for a road-side lesson. It's in a bid to encour- age walking as the pri- mary mode of transpor- tation. A number of students who attend Howick Pri- mary, which is one street away from the main road, need to cross Pakuranga road,'' Ms White says. We have had reported incidents of students in the past attempting to cross the road at other locations. I believe there have been near misses and I would encourage anyone crossing any part of Pakuranga Rd to ensure they do so at the nearest set of traffic lights.'' Groups of students practised crossing the road, observed traffic behaviour and talked about hazards. Ms White says busy roads shouldn't stop them walking to school. Children can cross this road quite safely provided they adhere to recommendations.'' During March Howick police and the Eastern Courier are supporting the Marching On cam- paign to get more chil- dren walking to school. Walking has many benefits including reduc- ing traffic congestion, lower vehicle emissions, promoting independence, enhancing social devel- opment and getting a dose of exercise.
