Bus/Walking School Bus

School Bus

Riverhead School students (Y1-8) must live at least 3.2 kilometres from the school, over the shortest public road or pedestrian route from home roadside gate to the school’s front gate. The bus runs from Borics to Barratt Road.

Walking School Bus

Thank you so much to Esme who has volunteered to be our Walking School Bus co-ordinator for this year.

We are also on the lookout for some lovely people who can help drive the bus home in the afternoons. This involves collecting all the walkers in the afternoon (you will have a roll) and then walking them as far as the tennis courts.

Our wonderful and popular Walking School Bus operates every afternoon (leaving school no later than 2.40pm). There is no cost to enrol your child on this service and it is a great way to keep your child safe and provide them with a bit of exercise as well! Information is available at the school office.

Currently the bus walks to the tennis courts. If requested by you, children may leave the bus prior to reaching Edward St. e.g. Kauri Gum Store, Duke St, King St, Maude St, Albert St, Queen St, Arthur St, Great North Rd. Please Note there are NO pick-ups from the Four Square unless your child lives in either Maude St or Albert St.

Please fill in consent form below if you wish your child to use this service, or contact Miss Masson at josiem@riverhead.school.nz
