Information for the Schools


There is an exciting new initiative being started in your area and we thought your school maybe interested in being part of it.

Project Brief:

The aim of Junior Neighbourhood Support is to promote a sense of pride, safety and community spirit in children, their schools and their wider community.
The programme is run by Neighbourhood Support Waitakere and partnered with the NZ Police, NZ Fire, Civil Defence and others.

The programme rewards and recognizes primary and immediate school students who have done an activity in their school, home or community that contributes to the aim of the project.  Some activity areas are: bike safety, preventing bullying, school or street clean ups, reporting graffiti, awareness/assistance with fire/police services, getting their families to join Neighbourhood Support, helping a neighbour, etc.  Children performing any of these "safety activities" can be nominated by school teachers, principals, local shop owners etc for a recognition award and prize pack at their school assemblies.
It is intended that this programme will positively reinforce areas in the curriculum and existing school programmes eg. DARE, Kia Kaha and Bluelight.
