New Entrant Enrolments

We have had a burst of new entrant enrolments for our class to open at the start of next term. However, we have received very few enrolments for the traditionally busy time of the year for new entrants, namely September/October!

If you have a child who will be coming to Campbells Bay School as a new entrant before the end of this year please enrol your child as soon as you can. If you know of somebody who has a new entrant child in our zone, please do let them know to enrol sooner rather than later if it is their intention to send their child to CBS.

This message is shared with our community as we need to plan for the appointment of teachers for new entrants classes well in advance of the classes opening. The more certainty we have the better. We are not touting for enrolments!

No Right Turn

A reminder that there is to be no turning right into the bus bay in the mornings from 8.25am until 8.55am. This greatly assists traffic flow on Aberdeen Road.

Vehicles may turn right in the bus bay in the afternoon after the school bus has departed, at about 3.10pm.

Thank you for your cooperation.

COVID – 19 Alert Level

The Prime Minister is scheduled to make an announcement today regarding the alert level status. Should there be a change to the alert level we will send out a Pandemic Update either later today or tomorrow morning.

There is usually a delay between an announcement of a new alert level being made and the school receiving official guidance from the Ministry of Education in terms of what the school must do. Rest assured, you will know shortly after we know!

The Ministry of Education has been particularly supportive of schools during the pandemic, providing relevant and helpful information in a timely manner. We have very much felt we have been on the same team.

Free Uniform!

Tomorrow (Tuesday 9 June) weather permitting we will be putting out a table by the main gate of uniform items free to a good home.

Please feel free to help yourself.

Collecting Students during School Hours

Just a friendly reminder for the safety of your children you must sign your children out at the school office if you wish for them to leave during school hours. Please do not request your child to leave school and meet you at the bus bay or outside the school gates.

Once you have signed your child/ren out, you will be given a green slip to give to the class teacher or duty teacher.

Weekly News Week 7 and 8

Speed limits are changing across Auckland

On the 30th of June this year speed limits will change on many of the high-risk roads across our local road network.

Why are the speed limits changing?

Auckland Transport is working through a multi-year programme (the ‘Safe Speeds Programme’) to review speed limits on roads across our local road network to ensure they have a speed limit that is safe and appropriate for the function, design and use of the road.  Safe and appropriate speed limits will support our transport network to move people and goods effectively, efficiently and safely across Auckland.

At the end of 2019 the Auckland Transport board passed a bylaw to set new safe and appropriate speed limits on approximately 10% of the network and the first of these changes will come into effect on 30 June 2020.

Where are speed limits changing?

Most of the changes in this first phase are in Rodney, Franklin and Waitemata, including the city centre.  Plus on 98 other roads across the region. A full list of the changes can be found at

What are the limits changing to?

The new limits vary according to the type of road. E.g. urban or rural. The city centre roads will have 30km/h and 40km/h speed limits. These new limits recognise there are a growing number of vulnerable road users like pedestrians and people on bikes in the city centre. Details of all the roads and changes can be found on our website.

What happens next?

New speed limit signs will be installed in the coming weeks and will be uncovered on 30 June 2020, the date from which the limits will be legally enforceable by NZ Police. From the 1st of June there will be a public information campaign letting people know of these changes.

This is the first phase of tranche one. This tranche will be completed by November 2021. We are in the process of planning the second tranche of roads to assess.

Background to the Safe Speeds programme

Auckland has had a growing problem with death and serious injuries on our roads and at Auckland Transport we’re serious about tackling that problem.  We’ve developed a Safe Speeds Programme to review speed limits as required under the Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2017 to support our transport network to move people and goods across our region effectively and efficiently, without compromising people’s safety.  We believe everyone deserves to get home safely.

We’ve also adopted a Vision Zero approach to support our target that no one dies or is seriously injured on our roads by 2050.  Setting safe and appropriate speed limits, particularly on our high-risk roads and intersections, is one of the fastest and most cost-effective ways of stopping unnecessary deaths or serious injuries occurring on our roads.

In March 2019, Auckland Transport consulted with the public on the then proposed speed limit changes. Close to 12,000 feedback submissions were carefully analysed over the following months. In October 2019, the Auckland Transport Board passed the Speed Limits Bylaw 2019 to set new speed limits, including those coming into force on 30 June 2020. This first phase of changes targets high-risk roads where there has been a history of deadly crashes (extracting data from the Crash Analysis System maintained by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency with input from NZ Police).
