Children of all ages travel to St Mark’s from the Greater Wellington region. Currently, St Mark’s offers two school bus services for our students, a Private Bus Service, and a Public Bus Service.

Children travelling on the school bus must complete a Bus Code of Conduct form yearly, or when starting the service for the first time. The form must be completed and returned to the school office, regardless of what service they are using. The Bus Code of Conduct form is in your school diary.

Dedicated bus duty monitors are provided in both the morning and afternoon to check the children on and off the bus. If a child is not travelling on the bus on a scheduled day, parents must contact the school office by 2pm of that day.

Please note that times below are approximate and it is wise to be at the stop at least 5 minutes prior to scheduled departure.
