In 2015 DPHS was lucky enough to purchase a school bus which is used to provide a chaperoned lift service to our families north of Durban with pick up points in Mount Edgecombe, Gateway and Broadway in Durban North, with the timetable as follows:
Collection point 1: Mount Edgecombe Estate – 06:25
Collection point 2: Shell Garage on uMhlanga Rocks Dr – 06:35
Collection point 3: Remax office, Broadway Rd, Durban North – 06:50
In 2023 the “DPHS 2” joined the DPHS family to offer morning chaperoned transport from Cowies Hill and Westville to DPHS.
Collection Point 1: SASOL Garage (Cowies Hill) – Bus departs promptly at 06H20
Collection Point 2: Shell Garage (Roger Sishi Rd) – Bus departs at 06H30
Collection Point 3: Westville Swimming Pool – Bus departs at 06H40
Collection Point 4: Westville Boys’ High (Outside Xpanda offices) – Bus departs at 06H50
Offered on a first come first serve basis with discounts given to families with more than one child travelling, these services have a proven track record and have run successfully since its inception.
The buses are also used to assist with transportation to sport fixtures and outings.
The chaperoned buses deliver the boys to the school by approximately 7:10am each morning.
