2002 School Bus Winners Sir David Brand SchoolCompetition Closed

The Sunday Times Win a School Bus token collection period has now concluded.

It is now time for School Bus Coordinators to start counting the tokens.  They should ensure that all of their supporters have forwarded their tokens for inclusion in the final tally.  

Follow this simple six step process to make sure you get your token tally sheet in by 5pm Friday October 17, 2003.

Six Easy Steps

  1. Collect your tokens from your students, shops, businesses, parents and friends who have been collecting on your behalf.

  2. Count all the tokens collected.

  3. Complete the school bus final token tally sheet that was included in your School Bus Collectors' Kit. Fill in the number of tokens collected by your school, along with the number of students at your school.

  4. Fax the completed form to The Sunday Times on 08 9421 1437 no later than 5pm on Friday October 17, 2003. Schools which do not have their tally in by this time will be ineligible to win.

  5. DO NOT SEND YOUR TOKENS to The Sunday Times. Keep them somewhere safe.  The Sunday Times will collect the tokens from the top five schools so that external auditors can verify their totals.
