For Parents - Transport to school

Transport by Bus

Bus Pass Information

All new students need to complete an application for free school bus travel on the Transport for NSW website.
Once completed online, parents need to print the form out and take it to the College office. The College checks details and signs the validation before sending these forms directly to Transport for NSW in Sydney. Bus passes will be routinely issued during the first week of the school year from the College office. Travel on school buses is permissible without a bus pass for the first two weeks of school until new passes have been issued to students. New bus passes need to be issued whenever the student changes address. Students are asked to keep their current Bus Passes for the following year unless there are changes of school or home address.

Information on school bus timetables is obtainable from Busabout on 6921 2316.

Private Vehicle Conveyance Subsidy

Where there is no public transport available parents can apply for a subsidy towards transporting students to school or to the nearest bus stop by private vehicle. This applies only where the nearest transport pick-up point is at least 1.6 kilometres from home. To be eligible travel must be made from home to school or transport pick-up point both in the morning and afternoon.

Applications for private vehicle conveyance must be made on the Transport for NSW website.

Driving to School Policy

The following steps need to be taken and agreed to before students are permitted to drive to and from the College.
• They have written permission from a parent or guardian
• Any student travelling in the car of another student can only do so with the written permission of both parents/guardians (ie the driver’s and the passenger’s).

The College recommends that siblings be permitted and, at most, one other authorised person.
• All vehicles should be roadworthy with each occupant having their own seatbelt.
• Vehicles must not leave the College during day without the written authorisation of the Principal, Deputy Principal or Head of Welfare.
