TravelWise is an ongoing project that aims to improve road safety and promote sustainable school travel journeys while protecting our environment. At Browns Bay School we have been awarded a Gold certificate in recognition of our contribution and commitment.  We work in partnership with Auckland Regional Transport Authority, North Shore City Council, and our school community. Our school is committed to safe, active and sustainable travel to and from school.

 

The benefits include:

• Reduced traffic congestion at the school gates, this improves safety for all children.
• Reduction of polluting car emissions in the environment.
• Helping children learn road safety skills and become familiar with their community.
• Improved engineering infrastructure to promote walking/cycling within the school zone.
• Encouraging walking/cycling to improve children’s fitness and health.

• Encouraging walking/cycling to ensure that children arrive alert and ready to learn.

• Bringing the community together to walk with friends and neighbours on the Walking School Bus, carpooling or using the park and walk options.
