School Bus Driver of the Year Award

The Prince Edward Island Home and School Federation is pleased to announce our annual School Bus Driver of the Year Award.  This award recognizes school bus drivers on Prince Edward Island for his/her service in keeping our students safe as they travel to and from school each day.

Our school bus drivers are professionally trained individuals who capably transport our children in a safe manner. They are the first school employees who come in contact with our children each school day, and the last at the end of the day. Drivers are expected to teach students school bus safety rules and procedures. Bus drivers manage student behaviour on the bus and care for the physical and emotional well-being of each young person each and every school day.  School bus drivers play a vital role in our education system, and the P.E.I. Home and School Federation is pleased to recognize an outstanding individual for his/her service and dedication to the safety of Island children.

Parents, through their Home and School Associations, are invited to submit nominations for the School Bus Driver of the Year Award.  Please attach a paragraph describing why you are nominating this person.  Include supporting recommendation letters from other parents, your principal, teachers and/or students in your school.
