Getting to and from school safely

As a parent or carer, it’s your responsibility to get your child to and from school safely. Student safety is our priority.

Keep our school community safe by:

  • driving and parking safely, even if it means parking further away and walking the rest of the way to school
  • being a good role model
  • never calling your child from across the road
  • using the safest place to cross the road.

School Opal cards

  • Go to the School Student Transport Scheme to check eligibility and apply for a school Opal card.  
  • If you change schools or home address make sure you update your details. Students starting Year 7 should update their details at the end of Term 4.
  • School Opal cards can only be used for travel to and from school. Students are required to have their own Opal cards for transport outside of school and for excursions.
  • Go to Hunter Valley Buses for timetable details.

Subsidised school travel

Transport for NSW provides subsidies to assist school students.

  • The School Student Transport Scheme provides eligible students with free or subsidised travel on public transport between home and school.
  • The School Drive Subsidy may help towards the costs of driving children to school if you live in an area where there is no public transport.
