What is the Walking School Bus?

A Walking School Bus is a group of students, with adult supervision, walking along a set route between their homes and school. Children can join the bus along a route, near their homes, or they can be taken to a collection point to commence the walk.

What will it take to be a volunteer?

2 hours of your time on a Thursday morning (less if you get picked up from School!)

Be physically fit to walk up to 3kms (return trip)

Have a child related to you walking with the bus

or hold a Working With Children Card

How do I become a Volunteer?
