Walking School Bus

WALKING SCHOOL BUS AT MARSHALL LAING

Marshall Laing Primary School proudly supports the Walking School Bus initiative – a safe, healthy and fun way for children to walk to and from school with other children, supervised by a rostered group of parents. If you and your child would be interested in joining one of our buses we would love to hear from you. Please appreciate that if your child does join a walking school bus that you will be required to be part of the roster.

We have one Walking School Bus running at the moment but would love to have more.  Please contact Johanna Callander [email protected]  or Katerine Robinson [email protected] if you would like to join our current bus and are happy to be rostered to help, or would like to start up a Walking School Bus.

New Walking School Bus route coming soon!
