Yes. We offer bus services that are based around each of the schools. Please contact us for more detailed information.
In order to ensure that everyone can use the school bus worry-free, we would like to inform you of our
accident prevention measures as follows.
School bus drivers
The school has a professional approach to its work and no member of staff drives the school buses.
The school bus service is outsourced to a driver dispatch company, and experienced drivers are
responsible for the operation of the buses. The drivers also inspect the buses and deliver goods
between schools, even when the buses are not in operation, so they are never away from the bus for
long periods of time.
Two people on the bus at all times
The school bus always operates with a bus attendant and a driver. The bus attendant is a member of
staff in charge of childcare at the school and knows the children very well.
Preparing a list of students using the bus
Lists for both picking up and dropping off are checked and prepared monthly to ensure that changes
are reflected. We use this information to keep track of the number of students. When we collect your
child at the bus stop, we check your child’s name and enter the results of the temperature test in the
Checking after drop-off
The attendance status of the bus user list is shared with the class teachers. After dropping off the
students, the attendant checks the back of the bus to make sure that there are no students left in the
vehicle or forgotten items. Afterwards, the driver also checks the seat belts and disinfects the vehicle.
The class teacher checks the bus roster against the information received from the receptionist about
the child’s absence, and calls the parents after 9.30am to confirm if there are any discrepancies with
the prior notification.
Students may purchase lunch from school or bring their own boxed lunch. Please contact us concerning school lunches for students with allergies.
Observation weeks are held in February and June. We offer parent-teacher conferences during observation week. We do not have a PTA, so parents are not involved in school operations.
Yes. School events are a part of our curriculum, so students must participate.
