That is a lot of parents and children experiencing a huge milestone all at once! The difficulties are obvious for transitioners: new friends, bossy teachers, bigger kids to look out for and not getting lost to name a few! Without the older students on school run, the chances of these six students getting to and from school each day without some major hiccup is pretty slim. Think about the process required for Wagait Beach children to get to school each day. The bus pickup, the jetty walk, getting on and off the ferry, the other school bus and then arriving at the correct school and eventually the correct classroom. Wagait Beach school children are lucky to live in a community where there is a unique culture of caring on the school run. Jack Dravitski and Kye Hollingsworth are two older boys who feel it is their responsibility to help the younger kids get survive the bus and ferry run. It is scary for the little kids, they are scared to be with the big kids said Kye. When asked why they help the younger ones they said initially their teachers told them that they needed to make sure the little ones get on the bus at the end of the school day. continued page 6...
