Use the form at the bottom of this page to indicate which of the three scheduled times your child will depart from. If you know your child will participate in Wider Life programme, they must be registered for the 5:45 pm route home. We kindly request you confirm this by September 22nd, 2023, to ensure buses are appropriately allocated and designated according to our students’ needs.
We are unable to allow students to vary their times of departure. If there is a valid need to request a change to the scheduled time, the notification must be made to the transportation coordinator or bus driver with sufficient notice.
We aim for a maximum travel time of 45 minutes, aiming to arrive at school between 8:00 am, and 8:10 am. The expected return for each of the scheduled afternoon times is 30 - 35 minutes. We cannot assure/compromise with exact timings due to the nature of the service (congestion, traffic accidents) and the number of students using this service.
Zones will only be covered if a sufficient number of students subscribes to these services.
St. Julian's School and F-Irmãos will attempt to satisfy any request with an address not located in our zone map. Any request for transportation service outside of our zone map will be given meeting points of existing bus routes compatible to your request.
