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

The Bus Code of Conduct form is completed yearly or when starting the service for each child. The form must be completed and returned to the school office, for each child, regardless of what service they are using. It is to be completed yearly or when commencing the service.

The Permission form is completed before the start of each term for each child.

Dedicated bus duty monitors are provided in both the morning and the afternoon to check the children on and off the bus.

If a student is not traveling on the bus on a scheduled day, parents must contact the school office by 2pm of that day.
