Released on October 21, 2019In recognition of the important work of the province’s school bus drivers, October 21 has been proclaimed as School Bus Driver Appreciation Day.
“School boards recognize and appreciate the important work that is done by bus drivers and the dedicated service they provide to the children and youth in our school systems and we thank them,” SSBA President Shawn Davidson said. “Bus drivers are a vital part of our education sector.”
The Student Transportation Association of Saskatchewan (STAS) represents individuals who drive students to and from school on behalf of Saskatchewan school divisions. The association promotes safety and efficiency in student transportation services in the province.
“As we know, the bus driver has the most important job in transporting the most precious of cargo, our children,” STAS President Trish Anderson said. “We will continue to provide any training and assistance we can to support our drivers across the province and make their job easier, and work with other provinces to get the highest level of training we can possibly provide. Thank you to all the drivers out there for doing the very best at a very difficult job!”
School Bus Driver Appreciation Day has been celebrated in Saskatchewan for the past 10 years as part of Education Week. This year’s theme Working and Learning Together recognizes the contributions of all staff members contributing to the success of Saskatchewan students.
