Did you know that we take bus safety VERY seriously? We work hard to ensure that our buses are in excellent mechanical condition and that our drivers are trusted and well-trained. Beyond our own internally-managed training on first aid and transport procedures, our drivers have all been trained in the Smith System of defensive driving. Many thanks to the U.S. Embassy for its support with that training.
As an additional measure, we have installed a vehicle tracking system in each bus. Not only does this allow us to track the location of all our buses in real time but it also records speed limit violations, harsh cornering, harsh braking, accidents, and other data. Furthermore, onboard cameras provide views forward and into the cabin. These tools have allowed us to take a leap forward in ensuring student and driver safety in our buses.
Given how seriously we take bus safety, please let me know if you see one of our buses driving in a way that you feel is unsafe. Since our buses are unmarked, please make sure to write down the vehicle registration number. This helps us ensure that the bus in question is actually one of ours since we often get reports of bad driving that turn out to be someone else’s bus.
On that note, remember that a speed camera has been installed near the school on Leopard Hill Road. Due to the presence of our school and Naledi School across the street, the speed limit as you approach and pass in front of the school is 40 kph. For everyone’s safety – and to avoid an unpleasant fine – please drive slowly and carefully.
The Leopard's Tale is our main medium to keep our families informed on such things as the day to day happenings on campus, after school activities, summaries of any arts and sports events, helpful resources, and important dates and reminders.
