I would like to update you regarding some school buses arriving late into school in the morning and in the afternoon. This has been a stressful time for our pupils, parents and staff.
The Teacher in Charge of Transport and I have spoken to Translink regularly about late buses. We have been informed that a new scheduler is working to support us. Unfortunately, whist their intentions are genuine, the impact for our young people is not supportive – they arrive late to first period class and in the afternoons, a number have had to rely on parents or family members to collect them.
Last week, I contacted Mrs Carla Lockhart (DUP & Governor)and Mrs Joanne Dobson (UUP). I hope they can support us in resolving this situation. In the meantime, I want to thank all of you who have contacted the school with your concerns. I am hopeful that this can be resolved quickly in the interests of all our children.
Mrs L Currie
