The School Bus service is available for students starting in Year 1 upwards. Early Years Students must be dropped off and picked up from school by an adult.
The buses are provided and operated by Montri, a reputable company with more than 40 years’ experience.
Students are transported in minibuses with seatbelts compulsory for all passengers. In addition to the driver, Montri also employ a bus monitor on each bus who are responsible for ensuring that all the children are well behaved throughout the journey and who will accompany younger students into site upon arrival at school.
Each bus is equipped with the following:
