2022 Changes
The school has been informed that there will be changes to school bus services commencing, the start of the 2022 school year that may impact on the journey to or from school. The changes to services will be available within Translink’s Journey Planner - two weeks prior to the start of the 2022 school year. All students that utilise bus services for school travel will need to re-plan their journey to and from school during that period. 
Any questions related to school travel can be directed to Translink via telephone on 13 12 30 or via the link available at​
