3,500 kids use school trans­port sys­tem

Bray People - - NEWS -

A to­tal of 3,567 pupils across Wick­low avail of the Bus Eire­ann school trans­port scheme.

Every day the scheme brings pupils to and from school on 123 buses on 178 school runs.

To mark this Bus Eire­ann is run­ning a Go Places com­pe­ti­tion for Tran­si­tion Year stu­dents where they are ask­ing TY stu­dents from Wick­low to get cre­ative in mak­ing mem­o­ries about their jour­ney to school.

Stu­dents are be­ing in­vited to sub­mit projects in words, pho­to­graphs, or videos about their jour­ney to school.

Whether they travel by foot, bike, car or bus – Bus Éire­ann want to hear about your jour­ney. Where do they go? How do they spend that time? Who do they travel with? Who are the peo­ple and what are the places in the com­mu­nity that they pass by every day, and what are their sto­ries?

The dead­line for the com­pe­ti­tion is on March 16.

Three lucky win­ners will re­ceive an iPad and the over­all win­ner will also re­ceive a day trip to Tayto Park for their class with en­try and pri­vate coach trans­port to and from their school in­cluded.
