PWSD school bus drivers compete in Zone 5 Bus Rodeo

October 10, 2018

Four PWSD school bus drivers participated in the Zone 5 Bus Rodeo on Saturday, May 14 at High Prairie School Division.

As part of the competition, drivers completed a written exam, pre-trip inspection and an obstacle course which included simulations of parallel parking, railroad crossing, student pick-up, and navigating through a diminishing alley and over rows of balls. Participants were judged and scored, and the event was deemed an excellent skills-development opportunity.

PWSD school bus drivers participating in the event were (pictured left-right) Susan Beck and Kelly Bertin, Beaverlodge routes; Shirley Fisher, Hythe route; and Connie Hvall, Spirit River route. The latter three have opted to compete at Provincials in Red Deer on June 4, which is open to three drivers per school division.
