There is a set charge per term for this service. This will be invoiced by Kiwi Coaches and not by the College. Failure to pay promptly will result in the student being refused permission to use the bus.

Parents will need to contact Kiwi Coaches directly for a place on the bus and to arrange payment for this service.
