What is a Walking Bus and how does it work?
A Walking Bus is an organised walk to school with parent volunteers taking it in turns to escort the bus along an agreed route. Our route starts at the parking bays on Patrixbourne Road by the tennis courts, along Riverside Close, through the alley into the village recreation ground and into school. All involved wear hi-viz tabards and all volunteers have been DBS checked through school.
TRY OUT THE WALKING BUS WEEK
19th - 23rd March
Do you get fed up fighting for a parking space in the morning?
Do you wish your children could walk to school with their friends?
Would you like to drop your kids a little earlier so you can get to work on time?
If so, then the Walking Bus could be the answer. Its fun; healthy; environmentally friendly; cuts down on congestion and runs every day of the week.
If you would like your child (including pre-school children) to try it out and find out more, then come along to our 'Try Out' week. We are inviting families to walk with the bus to see what its really like.
You don't need to book; just turn up from 8:25am at the parking bays on Patrixbourne Road (opposite the swings) and we leave 8:35am sharp.
