  10. Transport – It is best that parents carpool students to Newtown Park as bus services are limited. The Newtown Park bus (No. 10 – Stop B) leaves from the Railway station at 7:40am, 8am and 8:25am. The 8:25am bus is the last bus to leave ensuring arrival on time to Newtown Park. Please make the necessary arrangements so you are on time. Additionally the Mairangi Bus (No.23 – Stop J by Kirkcaldie and Stains) can be caught on Lambton Quay at 7:35am, 8:08am and 8:23am. This bus also stops near Newtown Park and students will need to walk up to the park. Alternatively it is economical for a group of students to hire a pre-ordered shuttle to take them to Newtown Park from the Railway Station. Students will be expected to catch public transport home from Newtown Park and may be released earlier than 3pm.
