Walking School Bus

South Perth Primary School

Studies show that fewer and fewer students are walking and riding to school. Joining the Walking School Bus is a wonderful and convenient way of walking to school with a group of children from school. Why not try out the Walking School Bus during the Walk to School Challenge from 8th to 19th August 2016?

Operated with St Columba Primary School, there are two established Walking School Bus runs on Walking SB logoWednesday and Friday mornings. The buses have been running along two routes:

North East Route

Commences:   At the Wesley carpark entrance on Angelo Street
Days:               Monday to Friday during the Walk to School Challenge
Time:               8.20am, arriving at South Perth Primary School at 8.30am.

South East Route

Commences:   Junction of Hensman and Sandgate Streets
Days:               Monday to Friday during the Walk to School Challenge
Time:               8.15am, drops children at South Perth Primary School and continues on to St Columba’s School.

Please note:

The walking school bus is operated by trained volunteers. Please check there are at least 2 volunteers before leaving your child.  Children under 5 must be accompanied by a parent or carer unless specific arrangements have been made for that child to be cared for by another person on the bus.

The bus will not operate in ‘Road Weather Alert’ conditions. If you are unsure if the weather is bad enough, please contact a trained volunteer to see if it is operating.

A Walking School Bus Consent Form must be completed and given to the coordinating volunteer when you join the group for the first time.

Volunteers needed!  If you would like to volunteer to help run the Walking School Bus please see tick the box at the bottom of the consent form and return it to the school office.  Thank you!
