Students that live more than 4.8 km from Pekerau School (and are within our zone) are eligible to travel on the bus at no cost.
Other students can travel on the bus provided they purchase a bus tag each term and are prepared to get to the nominated stops along the bus route. The Te Awamutu combined school transport committee set the bus routes and price of the bus tags which are purchased from the school office.
No Tag-No Ride.
Pekerau Students are expected to adhere to our Pekerau Values at all times including whilst travelling on the bus.
Parents, whanau and caregivers are expected to support the school by encouraging positive behaviour on the bus.
Students that do not observe the behaviour expectations set out below are at risk of not being allowed to travel on the bus.
Non-compliance will result in:
Verbal warning to student- In the first instance, the bus driver and/or Pekerau School staff member will correct the behaviour by reminding the student what the expected behaviour is when travelling on the bus.
Contact with parents/whanau - Continued non-compliance will result in a Pekerau School staff member notifying the parents/whanau in writing or a phone call to let them know their child is not following the Pekerau School bus behaviour expectations. A stand-down period (from bus travel) of up to 1 week may be imposed at this time.
