Waitati School After-School Bus or Care Consultation

By Antony Deaker

We've been thinking about how to ensure that everyone in the community
has access to the local school and the barriers that exist for some
families. We have come up with a couple of possibilities and would
like some feedback before we explore either (or both) possibility
further.

Would you use either of the services listed below?

Option 1: A 'bus' into town at 3pm
This bus would travel to a central point from which you can collect
your children at a given time. There would be a cost, yet to be
decided, perhaps around the $3 mark. You would need to book a ride in
advance but would not need to commit to five days a weeks, or even
necessarily a regular day. The logistics of this will need to be fine
tuned but at this stage we are looking at whether this service would
be of assistance to you.

Name:
We currently have children at Waitati School: Y / N
We live in the area and are considering sending [ ] children to
Waitati School.
Our children currently attend another school: Y / N
We would not use this service: [ ] (tick if appropriate)
We would use this service: weekly / fortnightly / daily / a couple of
times a week (please circle)
How many children does this apply to?

Option 2: An After-School Care Programme
Based at Waitati School, this service would operate from 3-5pm. There
would be a cost involved as per other after-school care programmes.

Name:
We currently have children at Waitati School: Y / N
We live in the area and are considering sending children to Waitati
School: Y / N
Our children currently attend another school: Y / N
We would not use this service: [ ] (tick if appropriate)
We would use this service: weekly / fortnightly / daily / a couple of
times a week (please circle)
How many children does this apply to?

We are also open to extending these possibilities to pupils at
Warrington School if there is enough interest.

Please detach this form, complete and return to Waitati School to
ensure that we get the best possible information to inform our
decision.
