Te Kowhai School - To Be Our Very Best

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.

 

Eligible to travel free 

See the map (link at bottom of this page) to see if you are in the zone and therefore eligible for free bus transport.  If uncertain, please contact Kerry Crossland for clarification.

Ineligible transport option

All ineligible students may still travel on the bus but are charged @ $16.00 per week regardless of the days they do or do not travel.  Our school will be charged monthly in advance.

 Please have all students at their pick up points 5 mins before their pick up times.
