If required, all students in Kindergarten, Year 1 and Year 2, are eligible for free bus travel from home to school and from school to home. Students in Grades 3–6 are only eligible if they reside more than 1.6km from the school. If you are uncertain as to your child’s eligibility, please ask at the school office as we have a map supplied by the Urban Transit Authority. Application forms are available from the school office on request.
Once your child has been issued with a free bus pass, automatic issue occurs except in the following instance:
All students progressing from Year 2 to Year 3 who wish to travel by bus are required to complete a fresh application form in order to be eligible for free travel.
- Busways provides the bus service between Blacktown Station and our school.
- Busways also provides a direct service to our school from Doonside.
NB – Children travelling with any company other than Busways, who break their journey at Blacktown Station, will be required to fill out two application forms, as follows:
- one application form for travel from their home to Blacktown Station stating the name of the bus company with whom the child will be travelling
- one application form for travel from Blacktown Station to the school, stating that the child will be travelling with Busways.
If your child has to change buses, one from home to Blacktown Station and one from Blacktown Station to the school, and they are both Busways buses, you will only need to fill out one application form.
It is very difficult for the office staff to answer all your queries regarding which bus company services your area. If you are uncertain as to which bus company your child will be travelling with, or what the route number is, please make inquiries of the respective bus companies.
Please only take application forms if you are certain that your child will be travelling by bus. You can always ask for a form at the school office at any time during the school year, if it is required. The application forms are to be returned to the school office. Please do not post them directly to the bus company.
Lost bus passes – it is the responsibility of parents to apply for replacement bus passes. Forms for lost passes must be obtained from the school office.
