Bus Times

The Ministry of Education provide a free bus service to and from school for students in the Mauriceville area living further than 3.2 km from school.  Families living within 3.2 km of school must make their own arrangements to travel to and from school.  Some families unable to meet the bus maybe eligible for a Conveyance Allowance to help cover transport costs.

The school runs a bus service from Masterton out to Mauriceville and return for students who live in the Masterton area.  There is a weekly charge for this service as the bus is funded by the Board of Trustees and the School.  Pick up and drop off times can be discussed on enrolment.

Bus Costs

Mauriceville School runs a minivan service to and from town each day to collect students.  The running costs of this van is funded through the schools operations grant and as such we need to recover some of these costs from those who make use of the service.  We get no funding from the government for this service.  The cost for use of the town bus is $14.00 per week per child, or $30.00 for three or more children.

All families must sign our Van Travel Fees Agreement, which explains the charges and confirms that you agree to pay the fees.

Changes to Normal Bus Arrangements

If your child does not require pick up in the morning please text the van driver.  You must also contact the school if your child is away from school that day and let us know why.   If there are changes to the afternoon drop off you MUST let the school know.  We will not drop a child to a different house without parental permission.  You can phone the office or Facebook the school.  There is not always someone in the office, please DON’T leave a message as these are not always checked at the end of school – keep trying until someone answers.  If you message us via Facebook we will acknowledge the message if it has been read, if you don’t receive a reply we haven’t seen it.
