Fes­tive bus ser­vice to get kids to school

The Western Star - - News -

SPREAD­ING Christ­mas cheer while en­sur­ing all stu­dents have the same op­por­tu­nity to get to school is the driv­ing force be­hind Re­nee and Rod­ney Waugh’s bus run.

The busi­ness is in its fourth school run. Owned by Re­nee’s late par­ents Ken and Lorelle Jump, it drives 40-50 kids to school ev­ery morn­ing from Yuleba to Roma. Mrs Waugh said the free ser­vice is all about help­ing kids as well as the wider com­mu­nity.

“This fam­ily owned and op­er­ated busi­ness sup­ports any lo­cal com­mu­nity events and cel­e­brates the fes­tive sea­son by dec­o­rat­ing the bus,” she said.

“Driver Julie Klein took over the driv­ing af­ter I broke my back and is an out­stand­ing op­er­a­tor with the pas­sion and com­mit­ment to the com­mu­nity’s fam­i­lies.

“She fol­lows my com­mit­ment over the pre­vi­ous years in con­tin­u­ing on with adorn­ing the fes­tive sea­son, driv­ing the bus this year as the Naughty Lit­tle Elf.”

Mrs Waugh said with the drought con­tin­u­ing it is im­por­tant they sup­port the com­mu­nity in any way pos­si­ble.
