Dear Parents/ Guardians

We are still waiting for details from Bus ireann as to when school bus will commence. We
continue to contact Bus ireann and the Department of Education Transport Unit daily to
try and get the bus operational as a matter of urgency.
In the interim, the Department of Education have confirmed that they will pay you a
grant for the duration of time that the bus is not operational.
This grant is distance based on the four journeys parents/guardians takes each day at
0.3912 cent per kilometre.
For example if you are travelling from Drumcondra to Tyrrelstown the distance is 19km.
( You calculate your daily grant by multiplying daily
distance (19km) x 4 (trips parents make daily) x 0.3912 (cent per km)
19x4 x0.3912 = 29.73 per day.
This grant will be paid to each parent/guardian from 29th of August 2016 until the date bus
collects your child f or the first time. Parents/Guardians will be asked to submit a form to
Department of Education transport unit to make the grant claim when bus starts.
We apologise for the serious inconvenience this is causing you and we are doing our utmost
to get the school bus in place as soon as possible
If you have any queries, please contact the school on 01 8272018 or

Kind regards,
Helena Trench (Principal)
