Transport to and from the school is the responsibility of the parents. To facilitate travel, a group of parents organises a bus service using vehicles and drivers on a hired basis. The bus routes vary depending on demand, but cover a large area of the city. Please ask the School Bursar for details of the current routes. It is stressed that the School Management accepts no responsibility for schedules, safety or other issues regarding the school bus. The buses follow a pick-up schedule starting around 7.50am for the first child and arrive at the school at approx. 8.25am. For the return journey, the buses leave school soon after 2.30pm and 3.30pm for the Secondary Section. Bus monitors supervise the children en-route and check for forgotten items ant the end of the journey. Parents are asked to stress to their children the importance of observing basic safety rules on the bus, particularly the need to remain seated while the bus is in motion.
Parents are asked to ensure that all children are covered for all eventualities involving medical cover. The school carries a personal accident scheme, which covers permanent disability or death. It does not cover day to day wrist fractures etc so please ensure you and your family is adequately covered.
