Information Regarding Repulse Bay (RB) Buses and After-School Activities

G1 and 2 students enrolled in 2:50 - 3:50 p.m. RB activities

If your child is attending an RB based activity, there is no need to make a bus change.

The registered students will be transitioned from their classroom to the activity and handed into the care of the coaches/instructors.

At 3:50 p.m. your child will be escorted to the 4 p.m. bus. Please make sure you have provided the activity provider with your 4 p.m. bus number or preferred dismissal.

Lower Primary students enrolled in a 4 p.m. RB based activity or a 4:15 p.m. Tai Tam (TT) based activity

All Lower Primary students that are not registered in an activity directly after school must depart campus.
There is no after school care options or Lower Primary students.

Parents should make their own transport arrangements to the RB campus for 4pm activities and the TT campus for 4:15pm activities.

Please note: If you make a regular change of bus request to attend a TT based activity, your child must be met by a parent or guardian. Lower Primary students not transitioned to an activity at the end of their school day will need to depart campus. Parents should arrange transport back to RB campus or to the TT campus.

Dismissal from RB at 4 p.m.

When an RB based class finishes at 3:50 p.m., the coach will escort the students to their 4 p.m. bus.

While students can be picked up at 4 p.m. I strongly encourage all families to make use of the after school bus service. To take up the bus option, please provide your child's 4 p.m. bus number to the activity provider.

Changes to regular 4 p.m. transport

While bus to bus changes are not permitted, parents are able to request a change from a bus rider to a private pick up on a one off basis. However, to maintain student safety during the 4:00pm dismissal we recommend changes are kept to a minimum.

All change requests should be submitted through the Repulse Bay 4:00pm dismissal request system, at least 48 hours in advance. Please note that your request is not confirmed until you receive a confirmation email from the Activities Office. Once it is confirmed you do not need to inform the bus company, teachers or the activity provider, this will all be addressed through the activities dismissal system.

After School Activity Bus Times

G1 - G5 (Repulse Bay) 4 p.m.
