Yallingup Parents Win School Bus Controversy

YALLINGUP: Four families have won the battle of the school bus - a victory that marks the beginning of the end of Yallingup school.

Seven children from the four families began attending Dunsborough school officially as from last Monday – this time with the blessing of the Education Department.

They began attending the school unofficially the previous Monday. But they were withdrawn after 2 days when the department ruled they must continue to attend Yallingup School.

The battle has been going on within the Yallingup Parents and Citizen’s Association ever since the department announced plans to build the new school at Dunsborough.

Because the seven children involved in the changeover were left at Yallingup school unattended for more than an hour in the morning and an hour in the afternoon each school day, the parents of the four families rebelled. They were deeply concerned that there was no supervision over the children during that period.

The children had to catch the Busselton High School bus at about 7.40 each morning.
