Students are required to travel directly to and from school each morning and afternoon. They may not stop at shops on their way.

School Bus

The Ministry of Education provides free bus transport to students living more than 4.8km from their nearest full primary or intermediate school. Buses are also available on a user pays basis.

The roads around Somerville Intermediate school are extremely busy and hazardous to cyclists. Parents are to take responsibility for allowing their child to cycle to school. Please provide a note to school if your child is to cycle. Students must wear a helmet and should know the road code. Bicycles at school are left at the owner's risk.

Road Safety

We ask that parents model aspects of road safety:

  • In the way they use and respect pedestrian crossings.
  • In the manner in which they park.
  • In the way they use the loop road in front of the school.
