    Hey there! i just want to inquire if there is a bus service from flaxmere/hastings to your school, as we recently moved in flaxmere and we’re planning to go at Taradale High School but the transportation is a major concern and needs to be considered. you’re quick response is highly appreciated as we only have 1 week to sort this out before the start of term 3. Thank you so much!

      Hi there,

      Unfortunately, we cannot provide website responses during the school holidays. No, there is no bus service from Flaxmere, other than the public bus service. The Ministry of Education only provides buses to students to commute to their closest high school.

      Thank you.
