One morning when Rachael was gettingready for school, her mum told her thatshe would be walking to school byherself for the first time. Next Page
She would be doing this because hersister was feeling sick. Rachael wasquite daunted by this news, as she hadto walk past two sneaky driveways andacross a busy main road. Next Page
After walking on the footpath for quitesome time Rachael came to the sneakydriveway. First she listened for cars.Next she peeked around the wall tolook for cars. Next Page
When she saw that there were no carscoming out of the driveway she moved ontothe next driveway. Next Page
She did the same check on this drivewaybut this time there was a car (motaka) !Rachael waited for the car to back out ofthe driveway and then she carried onwalking. Next Page
“Phew that was close just as well I listened (whakarongo) and looked (titiro),” said Rachael. Next Page
Rachael walked on until she came to thebusy road. Rachael saw that further downthe road there was a set of lights. Shedecided that it would be a much saferoption to walk the short distance to thelights than be hit by a car ( motaka)! Next Page
When she got to the lights she noticed thatthere was a road patrol out. The roadpatroller pressed the button on the lightand the red man popped up on the light atthe other side. Rachael picked up a flagand waited for the man to go green. Next Page
As soon as the man on the light turnedgreen the road patroller yelled, “Crossnow!” Rachael walked across the crossingthen joined up with her friends. Next Page
