Buses

INFORMATION

Morning departure times are changing for routes 025, 026 and 027

From the start of Term Two (beginning Monday, April 29), please note there is a timetable change for morning services on bus routes 025, 026 and 027. These buses will depart 10 MINUTES EARLIER to help ensure students reach school in good time.

 

  • The North Star buses operate under the Ritchies bus company.
  • The Number 70 and 71 buses will pick up in the afternoons from the new bus-stop as you exit the school driveway on your right. There will be signs and teachers down there to remind you. Cars can no longer park in this bus bay.
  • The Number 45 and 53 buses will operate from the same bus stops in the afternoon as before, with slight amendments to times and routes.
  • The Silverdale, Coatesville and Okura buses will remain the same as before.
  • There will be a new public bus, the 861, going down Cavelli Drive. This will leave in the afternoons at 3.30 and may be a good alternative to the local school buses. The bus terminus will also be on Cavelli Drive; cars will no longer be allowed to park in this area. 
  • The 856, another new public bus, will now depart from Glenvar Road.

Where to catch your bus

  • All school buses arrive and leave from school in the bus stop area outside the school main gates.
  • In the afternoon, school buses load on both sides of Ashley Avenue outside the school boundary in the bus bays on both sides of the school gates.
  • Those catching public (not school) buses arrive and leave from the bus stop in Awaruku Rd or Cavelli Drive, or other suburban buses may be caught on Ashley Avenue uphill from the roundabout.

Free Buses

  • Some students are entitled to free bus transport. These students mostly live in Okura and north to Bawden Road. Contact the teacher in charge of buses to check your eligibility.

Expectations

  • When crossing the road in front of the school, students must use the pedestrian crossings.
  • In the morning upon arrival, students are expected to enter the school grounds straight away and not linger in front of the school or in surrounding streets.
  • In the afternoon, students waiting to board their bus are to line up in a single line BEHIND THE CONES on the footpath.
  • While on their bus, students are expected to behave in a way which does not cause offence to other passengers or to the bus driver. All instructions of the bus driver are to be followed without question. Behaviour which does not comply with normal school rules may result in the students concerned being denied access to the bus service for a period of time.
