Student views on bus safety

A mascot, written stories, and head-mounted cameras help students from rural and town schools share perspectives on school bus safety. Thanks to Far North REAP.

What’s this about?

Tuska the pig.

Tuska the Pig visits Cape Reinga.

In the Far North District, most students travel to and from school by bus. Every school community has specific safety challenges related to the journey, so this project provides students with engaging ways to share their perspectives and gain safety insights about the daily school bus ride.

This work is led by road safety educators from Far North REAP working with local schools and a locally owned bus company.
