A revised edition of the School Traffic Safety Team Manual was launched recently by the NZTA. All schools that have School Traffic Safety Teams (i.e. school patrols, school wardens or bus wardens) are being sent a hardcopy. The manual is also available online on the NZTA Education Portal.
This revision does not require schools to make any operational changes to the procedures used by the students in their existing STSTs. However, the manual does incorporate some changes in the responsibilities and procedures for adult supervisors, teachers-in-charge, principals and/or BoT, in accordance with the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 and the Vulnerable Children Act 2014.
The changes will not affect or change any STST training dates that schools have already booked with their School Community Officer for this year.
