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.
