School en­trance made safer

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Hamp­ton Hill School has a safe en­trance to its grounds thanks to ded­i­cated par­ents and a gen­er­ous for­mer pupil.

Traf­fic con­ges­tion and the lack of a foot­path at the top of Rimu St has long been a safety is­sue for stu­dents. The al­ter­na­tive route, to Hil­lary St, was a steep, un­paved bank.

On the week­end of July 20, in dis­mal weather, a group of stu­dents’ par­ents cut and boxed a foot­path. For­mer Hamp­ton Hill School pupil and owner of Aard­vark Con­crete Ser­vices, Glen Jones, lent his ex­per­tise, as did Firth Con­crete.

‘‘Their gen­eros­ity has en­sured the safety of not only the school com­mu­nity, but the com­mu­nity as a whole,’’ said the school prin­ci­pal, Kelly Scott.
