Bus Information

Morning schedules are a little confusing and you would be best to check with your nearest neighbour concerning stops, times etc.
In the afternoon 3 buses service the school:
a) Kiripaka Rd/Ngunguru Ford Rd.
b) Pataua/Glenbervie
c) Harris Rd/Whareora Rd

Three points of importance emerge when considering the bus services:
1. Any suggestions for alterations or extensions to services should be made in the first instance to the Bus Controller at the school.
2. Please advise the school if there is to be a change to the way your child normally goes home.
3. The use of the school bus is a privilege, not a right. Children must behave sensibly and in line with school guidelines both on the bus and at bus stops.

The bus driver is to be listened to at all times.
There is a 'Transport Policy' and Bus Route available from the school office.
