Children between the ages of three onwards can make use of the school bus service that is owned and managed by the school.
The school bus service was expanded with two new VW vans, making a total of five mini vans. On a daily basis we are transporting close to 60 children to and from school. Every child has an individual seat with seatbelts and booster seat or child seat when necessary. Children, in most cases, are picked up from home. In order to reduce traveling time, centralised pick-up points may be appointed.
At the beginning of each new school year, after the initial trial weeks, families receive approximate times for pick up and drop off. The amount of traffic and road works are unfortunately not controllable, therefore families making use of this service need to plan for a level of flexibility.
The service is charged on an annual cost-recovery basis. Pro rata fees are calculated for families joining during the year. The fees are payable upfront and are non-refundable.
The annual cost depends on the home address and the number of children picked up in that specific area. Prices stated are applicable when several families are serviced from that area. In the event of little demand from a specific location, an individual price is applicable.
