School Bus May Be Introduced

The Five Islands School is looking into the feasibility of a morning and afternoon school bus.

Headteacher Bryce Wilby says he did ask Kier construction if they would leave their minibus, used to convey staff around the island, for a few months but it is on lease and must be returned to the mainland.

Bryce hopes to hold a parents and carers meeting possibly next week to asses demand for a bus service and to find out who would use it and what times.

He says when there is a view on what people would be willing to pay he’ll see if any of the local providers would be interested in taking it on.
