Te Kowhai School offers a bus service. To be classed as ‘eligible’ for this free bus service families have to meet the criteria of being further than 3.2 kilometres from Te Kowhai School. Te Kowhai School also needs to be your closest school (i.e. if you live closer to Horotiu School than Te Kowhai School, you are not eligible for the free bus service).
NB: Bus entitlement zones do not necessarily match with school enrolment zones.
If you are not eligible, but would still like your child to catch the bus then they are still able to use this service, however they will incur a cost of $1.60 per ride. Bus tickets can be purchased from the school office which are $16.00 for 10 rides.
