Walking School Bus

What is a walking school bus? A group of children, supervised by 2 parents who walk a designated route to school.

Why have a walking school bus?

Originally the idea was to reduce traffic at the school gate, however it has the added benefit of keeping parents and children fit, teaching young children how to walk safely to school, providing an opportunity to meet children and parents in your local community, an environment for the older children to mentor and build relationships with the younger children in the school.

Children enrolled at Hillsborough Primary School can walk as little or as often as they choose. The WSB relies on parent volunteers to commit to one or two routes (before or after school) to walk the children - and up to no more than two sessions per week.

At the present time there are no Walking School Buses operating.
