SELWYN TIMES Tuesday August 16 2016 11 News School bus for Rangi students RANGI RURU Girls’ School students from the Selwyn District and Halswell will be able to use a new bus service to get to school. The initiative came from parents who were having difficulties getting their children to school using the existing routes in the city. The bus, which is identifiable by a Rangi Ruru School Bus sign, departs Burnham at 6.35am with five points from which students can be picked up and disembark from in Rolleston, Lincoln University, Lincoln, Tai Tapu and Halswell. It arrives at the school by 8.10am and returns at 4pm for pick-up and will end the day in Burnham at 5.20pm. Principal Sandra Hastie said the school is very supportive of effective public transport and having students on a bus, using bus lanes and other priority measures designed for bus efficiency. “There’s already too little time and too much stress in many lives so if we can alleviate that for parents and students, that’s a good thing,” she said. Fares are $7.50 return or $4 one way and students use their Cando card as they would for any Metro bus. The card can be topped up with the driver. Rangi Ruru business manager Neil Templeton said Red Bus has been very co-operative during the development of the service trial. “We are open to suggestions for improvements during the trial and are encouraging parents and students to give us feedback.” Dr Hastie says the service is also available to students from other Christchurch independent schools and parents should contact the school to register their son or daughter. She adds that although this a trial, all going well, the intention is to continue the service. SCHOOL BUS: A bus trial for Rangi Ruru Girls’ School has begun with pick-up points for students in Rolleston, Lincoln University, Lincoln, Tai Tapu and Halswell. ​ SCHOOLS New entrants Izzy Ponder, Harrison McDermott, Jackson Burnett, Mikayla Jeffrey and Xavia Costello all started at West Rolleston Primary School this term.
