All drivers of G1 are fully trained, holding RTA issued school bus driving licence and participate in our ongoing drivers’ training courses. They undergo a minimum of 40 hours of Safe Drivers’ Training Course, in a year.
All buses have designated pick up and drop off points.
It is the responsibility of the parent(s) to ensure that their child / children is/are at the pick-up point at the designated time. Buses will not leave from collection points ahead of schedule. However, due to traffic pressures, buses will not be able to wait at pick-up points after the scheduled time. Due to traffic delays buses may arrive at pick-up and drop-off points behind schedule.
Children up to Grade 4 will not be left at the drop off point unless the designated adult is present to collect them. Adults designated to pick up children should carry photo ID in the event that verification of identity is required. In case an adult is not available at the drop off point the children will be brought back to school and handed over to the School Administration. Parents should then pick the children from school.
Written request, signed by the parent/guardian, for reasons of safety and security, is required if a drop-off other than usual is requested.
