Buses

Please check when enrolling your child as to eligibility.

Timetables can vary at times, we will advise via the school newsletter when any changes need to be made.

Please inform the bus controller (Warwick Moyle) of any changes to your bus catching routine, by phone or note, this helps us to ensure that all pupils get to and from school safely.

It is essential that children are marked off the bus list if they are not going to travel home on it. Bus lists can be found on hooks by the office door.

Pupils are not able to change from one bus to another. The bus company insist children must travel on the bus for which they are eligible. To assist Ritchies Buses non transferrable bus passes are allocated in the following colours to each child:

Hamurana Road – BLUE pass
Jackson Road – ORANGE pass
Te Pu/Kapukapu Road– GREEN pass


Children must show their passes to travel on their bus. Buses must not exceed the legal passenger limit.

Those parents who have to transport their children some distance to school by car on Kaharoa Road may be eligible for a conveyancing allowance. If you would like to check eligibility please contact the school.


Road/Bus Safety
Your assistance in ensuring that the road rules are kept when travelling to and from school is very necessary. There is absolutely no bike riding in the school grounds.
