Walking School Bus

After months of lovely sunshine and warmth the walking bus will now be parked over the wintery spell.  The service was used by students a total of 290 times since we rolled out in March this year !!  A huge thank you to the amazing parents who volunteered their time and energy leading the bus and supporting the kids and parents of our community.  We've received great feedback from users of the service and look forward to revving up the engines again in springtime.
