At Ruaraka Academy, we offer school transport services that are optional. Please ensure that during admission, you visit the office to establish the nearest pick up or drop off point along your route.
It is very important to let the bus assistants know if your child should expect someone to pick them from the drop off point so that in case there is no one to do so, for safety reasons, the child will be taken back to school and you are contacted. Ensure that the school has your up to date contacts at all times.
