Our School - Bus Travellers
Who can travel on a school bus?
The general rule is that students living 4.8 km or more from, and attending their nearest appropriate school/campus, are eligible to travel on a school bus service at no cost.
Students not attending their nearest school/campus may access a school bus subject to seating capacity and upon payment of a fare.
An application form must be completed for each child travelling on a bus on a regular basis.
Can my child travel on a school bus if they are not a regular bus traveller?
Parents / Guardians must contact both the Primary School (Ph 5497 1581) and the Donald High School (Ph 5497 1205) to seek permission for a child who is not a regular bus traveller to travel on a school bus
Daily Routine of Bus Travel:
A list of students travelling on each bus in marked off on a roll by your child's teacher each morning and a teacher on duty at the bus stop.
This ensures students are on the correct bus and get on the bus when they are supposed to.
Parents are requested to provide a note, phone call or eform via Skoolbag if their child is not travelling on a particular day or on a regular day during term (eg for sport).
An allowance is available to students who travel more than 4.8km to their nearest bus stop.
See below for an application form for Conveyance Allowance.
