School Bus


Most of the students at Dovedale School come to and from school by bus. This is based on the Ministry Of Education Guidelines and Eligibility for School Transport.

We have 2 routes that share one bus. Our school bus is managed by Nelson Coachlines and our Bus Driver is Maureen Papps for bus enquires please contact the school.

Eligibility for school transport is determined by the Ministry of Education.
The basic criteria for eligibility is as follows:

  • Pupils who live more than 3.2kms away are eligible to catch the bus.
