Operated with St Columba Primary School, there are two established Walking School Bus runs on Wednesday and Friday mornings. The buses have been running along two routes:
North East Route – currently suspended due to lack of volunteers
Commences: junction of Tate Street and Angelo Street
Days: every Wednesday
Time: 8.15am, arriving at South Perth Primary School at 8.30am.
South East Route
Commences: junction of Hensman and Sandgate Streets
Days: every Friday only (Wednesday service suspended)
Time: 8.15am, drops children at South Perth Primary School and continues on to St Columba’s School.
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!
