Heroic Teachers Save Kids From Bus Fire

Victor P Taffa

Minister for Education Martin Dixon has congratulated the quick actions of teachers that saved students from a bus fire this morning.

“If not for the quick action of staff we would be telling a very different story about the events of today.” Mr. Dixon said.

“I would publicly like to offer my sincere thanks to staff from local primary schools that saw and smelt that something was wrong on the bus and got the students off.”

“It is my understanding that the teachers alerted the driver to the smoke and made a quick evacuation of the bus that soon after exploded into flames.”

“I understand that the evacuation was carried out professionally and calmly and I am thankful that all involved are now safe.”


Staff and students from Dixon’s Creek Primary School, Hoddles Creek Primary School, Seville Primary School, Woori Yallock Primary School, Millwarra Primary School and Launching Place Primary School were on a day excursion to the snow.

“Swift action from those involved has averted a real disaster.” Mr. Dixon said.
