Oroua Group of Schools Triathlon - Friday 14th March
This Friday the 14th, we will have all the Oroua Schools here competing in the Triathlon.  This event is scheduled to start at 10.15 and will be finished by 2.00pm.

Please be aware of children in the village on the Oroua Valley Road between these times.

This will involve many children running on the road side along the main road between the Playcentre and the school entrance-way off of the main road.
More importantly, there will be students on push bikes biking along the main road, having come out of Makoura Road onto the main road and biking along to the school entrance way (at the Jensen gateway).
There will be police officers manning the road on the southern and northern end of the village and the road will have cones and signs warning of the event for motorists.
If at all possible, could you please consider planning any trips through the village and along Makoura road on this day before or after the times stipulated.  If this is not possible, could we ask that traffic be extremely cautious approaching Makoura Road and the southern and northern end of the village on this day, and be prepared to wait while the bikes are on the road between the hours mentioned above.  Your understanding and support would be very much appreciated.
If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact Mary or Nicki.
