First Ride Program

First Ride Program: Event Information (Free Program)


We are pleased to announce the upcoming First Ride program, which will take place at the soon-to-open St. Patrick's Catholic School, located at 7810 Poplar Drive, Grande Prairie, Alberta. The session is scheduled for Wednesday, August 30th, commencing at 6:00 pm in the school gymnasium. We extend a warm invitation to all students residing in Grande Prairie and the surrounding areas to attend this event.


The First Ride Program is a collaborative effort between First Student, GP Catholic, and GP Public Schools. It serves as an awareness and safety initiative for parents and students who are utilizing the yellow school bus system for the first time. We welcome students from all grade levels to participate in this program.


During the event, parents and children will have the opportunity to engage in a school bus safety PowerPoint presentation, followed by a question and answer session. To conclude the program, parents and children will enjoy a short school bus ride, providing them with firsthand experience.
