IMS provides a bus service to and from each of its four campuses covering nearly all parts of Hong Kong Island. These buses are operated by Castle Brothers which has been working with the school since its inception in 2002. We encourage families to use the bus service wherever possible due to limited parking facilities at all campuses.
All buses have an accompanying ‘bus mother’ to help look after the children, with the wearing of seat belts being compulsory on all journeys. Where possible, a door-to-door service is organised in order to maintain a high level of safety for the children; however, this is always balanced by the need to provide reasonable arrival and departure times. In the morning, children are met off the bus and guided to the school grounds, while in the afternoon, they are escorted to their correct bus.
In addition, for the Stanley campus, a limited service is also available to take the children home after the conclusion of the Extra-Curricular Activities programme. A GPS system with a dedicated phone app is in operation on all Stanley buses, allowing parents to track in real time the progress of their child's bus and therefore help to ensure timely pick-up and drop-off arrangements.
The greatest sign of success for a teacher is to be able to say, "The children are now working as if I did not exist.”Maria Montessori
