Bus Route Changes – Effective Monday 13th June

The school bus route will be changing from Monday 13th June. This is to accommodate new families who would like to start using the bus. 

For most families there is no change to the timetable. Full details and the new timetable are available on the school bus website, but here’s a summary of the changes:

1) The school bus will no longer use Golding Road and Logan Road;

2) After leaving the Revive Church carpark on Belgium Road, the bus will turn left up Pukekohe East Road. It will then complete a loop of Jericho Road, before resuming the current route on Harrisville Road;

3) New bus stop at 137 Pukekohe East Road;

4) New bus stop at 199 Jericho Road;

5) Pickup and drop off times for the two Harrisville Road stops is now slightly later

The route and timetable on the website will be kept current and remains the primary source of information. The map is also on the website for reference.

If you have any questions, please feel free to be in touch.

Mask wearing on bus

Hi all,

Given that the children are no longer required to wear masks at school (and we operate a private bus service), the mask policy for the school bus has been updated:

Masks are no longer mandatory, however they are recommended.

If you have any questions, please feel free to be in touch.
