I hope you are all faring well during Level 3?
As we head into Term 4 I’d like to share some news. Amanda will no longer be driving our bus. She has chosen to step down from her role at the end of October. We wish her well for the future.
Wallace has decided to step down as our back up driver from the beginning of the next school year and enjoy some traveling of his own. We would like to thank Wallace for his continued support to the Society. Feedback from the children is that Wallace always makes the journeys fun and he has a smile for everyone. We will be sad to see him go but hope he enjoys his future plans.
We are now looking for replacements for both our permanent driver and for a back up driver. If you know anyone who might be interested in either, please get in touch.
Obviously under Level 3 we are not operating the bus. There is uncertainty as to when the school will be fully open and therefore the bus being back up and running. As we are a not-for-profit organisation that relies on our fundraising efforts to operate we would be extremely grateful if you are able to continue to support the Bus Society. However, we appreciate this time can be difficult for people and if you need to contact us regarding bus subscription fees please do.
I hope everyone stays safe and we see our bus out and about picking children up soon.
