Baringa School Bus Petition

A growing number of high school-aged students who reside in Baringa must travel to another high school in the electorate due to the Baringa State High School not opening until 2021. Currently there is no school bus service to collect students from Baringa and transport them to and from Meridan State College or other high schools. Students are required to walk up to 3km to the next closest school bus service. 

I have sponsored a community-led petition by Baringa resident Jamie Broderick requesting that a dedicated school bus service be created to safely transport students to and from Baringa to other high schools.
