Parking at School
I understand in the mornings and afternoons picking up your children from school can be a stressful process with the lack of parks available, and trying to get to and from work on time. Please make sure you are not illegally parking.

As mentioned before, I have received a number of complaints from the neighbours because their driveways are blocked. There have been a number of cars also parking in the school bus bay, blocking bus entry. Illegal parking has become a problem at school (mainly when the buses are leaving/returning on school trips), please do not park in the bus bay. I want to make sure our students are safe and can exit the bus on the sidewalk and not onto a busy road.

The police have visited the school and reviewed the situation and have asked us to provide car registration details of any vehicle illegally parked so we appreciate everyone’s cooperation with this.

Hui Whānau
Thank you for all that attended a wonderful evening of sharing from our very talented students at Fairfield School. I was thrilled with the turnout and success of the event. A huge thanks to Mrs Shuker and Mrs Rollinson. A fantastic opportunity for our students to showcase their skills.

Kind regards
Alasdair Maclean
