A Fire Engine arrives at George Street Normal School

The children in Model 1B and Model 2B had an exciting day recently when they had a visit from the Fire service as part of their Fire Safety topic.

Parking

A parent sent us a message about an online survey about parking. If enough people give feedback it may help GSNS get some more parking around our school.....
HI, it feels like there's a bit of a parking problem at the school at the moment. DCC are asking for parking feedback so this might be a good opportunitiy for people to raise this #DunedinCityCouncil want to know what people think about parking in Dunedin so we can improve the service we provide for our residents and visitors. To help them develop different options, they need feedback on the key issues, what works well and what they can improve. They are gathering information through the online form at www.dunedin.govt.nz/parking-feedback.
Feedback closes 5pm, Monday 21 May 2018.
