The school has very efficient, safe and reliable bus service and is operated to international standards. MIS has highly trained professionals planning, organising, monitoring and taking immediate action to safeguard our students from any problems and ensure they are comfortable and safe at all times.
Students are expected to be on their best behaviour in the bus as they would be in school. Parents of users are required to sign an undertaking that their child will abide by these expectations.
On every bus there is a matron whose primary duty is to look after the students in the bus. The matron will meet students in front of the bus, help store the school bags (for students in Year 3 and below) and ensure the student is properly seated with seat belts on. The matrons are trained in Emergency Procedures. The matrons will stay with the students under any circumstances. Students are expected to treat matrons with the upmost of respect at all times.
Discipline on the Bus
Matrons are also trained to maintain discipline and order on the bus. Issues which require further disciplinary action will be referred to the Head of the related Department.
Parents will be informed and may be asked to come to the school to discuss the matter. In an extreme case where the student fails to be cooperative, access to the bus service may be withdrawn for a specified period.
Pick-up and Drop-off
Students are picked-up and dropped home directly at their residential address at the scheduled time as advised by the Bus Coordinator. Every care is given to ensure buses travel the best route between home and school.
How to Apply
Bus Application Forms are obtainable from the Accounts Department.
Bus fees are paid in advance. If a student joins the bus service after the beginning of Term 1 or Term 2 a charge will be calculated. No refunds are made if the student withdraws from the service, other than in exceptional circumstances.
Before the start of the new academic year, the Bus Coordinator will inform parents of the route and pick up times for the students. During the term, changes will be advised by phone. Where the bus is significantly delayed, the matron will inform the parent and update them of the expected arrival time.
Routes and pick up times are continually monitored to ensure the best available route. Feedback is welcomed. Bus routes are scheduled to ensure the most efficient service to and from school. The pickup and drop off arrangements must therefore comply with the schedule.
