The PTA runs an extensive range of school bus services across the South Island School zone. The bus service is contracted out to Kwoon Chung Bus Services by the PTA.
Most students will be picked up very close to their homes or at public transport nodal points. Please note that the bus service is not meant to provide a door-to-door service. The school bus service brings children to school in time for the start of school in the morning and takes them home after school in the afternoon.

After School Activities Bus
Please refer http://sis.esfdev.com/sports-and-activities/ for bus routes. The after-school activities buses are organized by the school. For enquiries, please contact the school at 2555 9313. Please note that this is a complimentary service from Kwoon Chung Company for current bus pass holders only, no additional cost is incurred. Therefore, students should carry a current bus pass when requested by drivers.
These buses are not intended to duplicate the regular school bus service, nor are they intended to provide a door-to-door service. The buses are to provide some assistance to students following extra-curricular activities. The aim is to allow students to connect with public transport to school or from school to home. If you do not wish your child to use public transport, you must make arrangements to collect him/her from school.
