Kiwi Coaches - Papakura Service
The College provides a chartered bus to and from Papakura. The choice of routes is as follows:
Bus 1:

Either bus will pick up boys on Mt Wellington Highway, outside Panmure District School, at approximately 7.50am.

Buses arrive at the College at approximately 8.10am.
The return trip in the afternoon follows the same route and it is expected that the last students would be home by approximately 4.00pm.

Note: The above timetable is as near to accurate as possible; however, with increasing traffic flows and congestion, it can be a guide only. Please allow a few minutes either side of the listed times to avoid disappointment.

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.
