What is a walking school bus?

A walking school bus is just like a school bus except children walk to and from school under the supervision of adult volunteers (parents), who act as the walking school bus driver.

Children are collected from stops along a planned route and dropped off at the school gate. Along the way they learn how to safely negotiate the road as well as socialise with friends and neighbours, improve fitness and arrive energised at school ready to learn.

Marist School has one route which starts at the top of Kitenui Avenue.
Our walking school bus operates on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays mornings only.
