Travelling to school

Walking School Bus 

We are looking for new volunteer supervisors so that we can have more children on the Walking School Bus. Just putting your name down as an emergency stand in for a regular volunteer would be a big help. Let us know what you can do and when you can do it, and we’ll get you busy.

Please contact Nico at apswalkingschoolbus@gmail.com.

Park & Walk or Ride

Not everyone can walk or ride the whole way to school or the bus stop, but it’s easy to drive part of the way and then walk or ride the rest! 

The Benefits 

Avoid the school carpark chaos and add some exercise into your family’s daily routine. Exercise before and after school can help make kids happier, healthier and even concentrate better in class. 

Walking or riding part of the way to school or the bus stop will help children learn road safety, set good habits for life and it’s better for the environment too! 

How to Park & Walk or Ride 

  1. Drive part of the way 
  2. Find a suitable spot to park (see map for recommended Park & Walk or Ride Start Points) 
  3. Walk or ride the rest of the way 
  4. Do the reverse on the way home
