When your kids go on a excursion do they all have a seat on the bus or are some students made to stand?
I went past a convey of 4 buses today and all four had kids crammed in so bad that they were standing right up to the front steps. The kids were from the local primary school.
Our school has such strict rules about no standing. They don't even alow primary school kids to sit in the middle back seat.

Not sure about excursions, from my experience all kids are seated. But travelling on the bus to and from school we had kids crammed into the seats and the aisle. It was 1 bus doing a 2 bus route but for some reason they cancelled the 2nd bus.

When i was at school the public school buses were always crammed full, sometimes to the point where the driver had to turn kids away. Fun in summer with a bus full of sweaty teens!

Could the kids have been going to school sport? I remember being packed onto a bus to go to the beach but not on long excursions

My schools policy is all children sitting with seatbelts. No child is allowed to stand. I would not be impressed if my child was on this bus.

Lots schools in Qld have a policy of only using buses with seat belts. Our school have their own buses which have seat belts

I think they were trying to make it compulsory at one stage but it didn't go through : (

Wowsers. Our primary school uses seatbelted buses. That's why our excursion costs are usually so high.

Hmmm I will ask that question when I'm looking at schools. I would rather pay more for a seat belted bus. How on earth do schools take kids on trips without a seat belt?!?
