We currently have two Walking School Buses that travel to and from Waterlea School. Each bus is run and accompanied by parent volunteers, and children are collected from stops along a planned route to school. Walking on the buses is a safe and social way for children to get to and from school: the children can spend time with friends, they get the benefit of being active, and they have bus tickets which get clicked to earn them certificates and special bag tags. Other benefits include reduced traffic congestion around the school gates and a more connected community. The map below shows the routes. If you live further away, you can drive to a Walking School Bus and join in. Or if you live along a route just join in as we walk past!
Meet at the corner of Wallace Rd and McIntyre Rd from Wednesday to Friday at 8.15am.
Walks home from school Thursday and Friday at 3pm.
