Staff from Netherthird PS were joined by officials from Ayrshire Roads Alliance and local Ayrshire Police Division Cumnock LPT Officers this week to assist them in getting pupils safely off the school bus.

Miss Donnolly and other staff attended Craigens Road on Thursday, October 8 to work with the Alliance and accompanying Officers to make sure the kids were helped safely on to the pavement.

On Twitter, East Ayrshire Police said: “Thanks to all the responsible parents and community for parking safely to allow this to happen.”

Netherthird and District Community Council also thanked the parents and wider community for parking safely.

The Community Council noted that they hoped to see this continue in the future.
