a) Students who live more than 4.8kms from the College may be entitled to a transport allowance where no suitable public transport service is available. Those who have suitable public transport are not eligible. In effect this means those who live within the Hamilton City boundary are not eligible. The transport allowance also applies to students who have to travel 4.8kms to their Ministry school bus stop. No allowance is paid for the first 2.4kms a student is taken by private car to the nearest bus stop.
b) A public transport allowance may be available for special needs students.
– Forms for (a) or (b) are available from the college by contacting Mr David Lang, Bus Controller, email@example.com
Please remind your daughter(s) of the need for safe practices when using school buses particularly when embarking and disembarking on main roads. All our school buses have Year 13 bus monitors to ensure appropriate and safe behaviour is maintained on the buses at all times. However, students need to ensure their own safety is managed, particularly when there is a need to cross roads on leaving their bus.
Please refer any concerns to the school bus controller, Mr David Lang by email firstname.lastname@example.org. Your feedback and comments are welcomed.
