Dear Parents and Guardians,
I regret to be the bearer of bad news but, from next week, schools and colleges across Northern Ireland face a period of significant disruption to transport services. In short, this will affect all of our school bus services.
We have been advised to share with you the following message so that you have notice to make alternative arrangements, especially if your child is sitting public examinations during the planned period of strike action.
We will, of course, keep you updated on developments. While we all hope that a resolution can be found to avert this action, we would advise that you make contingency plans. Wherever possible, please endeavour to make car-share arrangements and, to avoid serious congestion on site, to drop off and collect at Donard Park.
