Further updates regarding School Starting at Level 2 - 18 May

School Photo's
Kelk photography have kindly agreed to extend the order period for our school photos. If you missed getting your order envelope in, we'll be collecting them at the Office up to 9am, Tuesday 26 May.

Bus Transport
A reminder that if your child will be using Buses at Level 2 (even once) then we need to know, so if you only use the bus some days then you should still complete the form. Please also fill this in even if your child usually catches the bus but you don't plan on using buses in the foreseeable future.

A message from Orbus:
We’ve been working with schools and operators to meet demand. The good news is that we have some dedicated school services to take the pressure off the network for other passengers, and get our kids back to school. But there’s still more to be done. Keep up to date here on Facebook, or check out the school information page here and which schools we are working with

The below services will run from Monday:
•5D 8:35am Pine Hill to Logan Park High School
•6E 3:35pm Logan Park High School to Opoho and Pine Hill
•6D 3:05pm Dunedin North Intermediate to Pine Hill
•40C 3:15pm MacAndrew Intermediate School, Queens High School and Kings High School to Lookout Point

Regular services that will have an additional dedicated school run:
•Route 1: City to Palmerston at 3.35pm from bus hub.
•Route 8: 7:45, 8:00 and 8:15 from Normanby; return 15:20 to St Clair, 15:05 to Normanby (runs as duplicate, starting at 15:05 from Kings / Queens HS)
•Route 77: 8:00 trip from Mosgiel, return from City 15:42 and 16:12
•Route 44 - 7:48 Halfway Bush to hub
•Route 55 – 08:03 Brockville to hub

The schools listed above (or in relation to routes with additional dedicated routes) have confirmed they are registering bus students for contact tracing. With these control measures in place, the bus becomes a controlled environment and does NOT require physical distancing.

Buses have been asked to provide hand sanitiser. They are being cleaned in accordance with COVID-19 MoH guidance.

Students should look out for a sign in the window with a list of schools. Only students from these schools are permitted to board. They should enter/exit at rear. No need to show ID.

Students and parents are also encouraged to check our website here:  and/ or follow Orbus Dunedin on Facebook for up to date information
