Swan Transit operate a fare charging service for students who live within 4.5 km of school.
A school bus service, free of charge, operates for students who live more than 4.5 km from school. Please ask at the office for further information.
There is a form on the parents’ notice board in the Early Childhood Centre that must be filled in at the beginning of each week so that young children travelling on the bus can be accounted for (Year PP – Y2). Only children named on this form will be placed on a bus. Please also write in your class teacher’s communication book. In the best interests of all students, no verbal instructions from students will be deemed valid.
