I urge Parents and Guardians of school children to ensure that they apply for school transport for their children got the school year 2022 / 2023

Applications for school transport for the new school year 2022/23 have opened from Monday 24 January 2022. Applications must be made by Friday 29 April 2022. Importantly, this applies only for new applicants seeking primary and/or post-primary school transport for 2022/23. That includes:

• Students starting school in September 2022
• Students moving school, including those moving from primary to post-primary school
• Students who have or will move address before the 2022/23 school year

The closing date for new applications is Friday 29 April. Missing this deadline may mean no seat will be available, even for students deemed eligible based on distance from the nearest school. No fees are required at this point.
