School Census

Like most Auckland school students, 13-year-old Brooklyn-Rose Timu usually comes to school by car.

"Normally my nana drops me off in the morning and my mum picks me up in the afternoon," says Brooklyn-Rose, a Year 9 student at South Auckland's Mission Heights Junior College.

"It's on the way to work for Nana. It's like a 7- to 10-minute drive. The bus takes 20 minutes."

This year 45 per cent of the 8600 Auckland students who took part in the online Census At School got to and from school by car.
