School Bus Arrangements for 2022

School buses depart school from 3.15 pm onwards.

With the school returning under the red traffic light, a reminder that all students should scan on with the Covid tracer app and a face mask must be worn on-board and while students are waiting for public transport if they are 12 and over. This includes school buses, bus and train stations, bus stops and ferry terminals.

Then from 11.59pm, Thursday 3 February, ākonga (students) Year 4 and above, as well as adults, will need to wear a face mask.

A face mask needs to be an actual mask attached to the head by loops around the ears or head. This means scarves, bandannas, or t-shirts should not be used.

More details can be found here on the AT website.

A reminder that the Ministry of Education provided bus services from Kaukapakapa and Warkworth have changed providers from Ritchies to Bayes Coachlines. To make sure that the start of the school year goes as smoothly as possible, please familiarise yourself with the information below.

As always, please either stay with your children while they are waiting for their school transport in the morning or keep in contact with them to make sure that they are picked up safely.
