Parents and caregivers are responsible for getting their children to and from school daily. However, the Ministry of Education acknowledges that some parents and caregivers face distance issues and a lack of public transport. For this reason, the Ministry offers School Transport Assistance (a school bus place and/or an allowance) to help these parents and caregivers get their children to and from school.

Please contact Student Services or the bus companies direct (details on the relevant bus route link) if you have any questions.
Possible Bus Disruptions
Preparing for disruption
It is important that, as parents/caregivers, you are prepared for the possibility that school transport services are cancelled at short notice due to unforeseen circumstances. Please ensure that you have a backup plan for transporting your daughters to and from school in the event of their school transport not operating.
What happens when a school transport service is cancelled?
The transport service provider has been instructed to let the school know as early as possible if a service will be cancelled. They have also been instructed to let the school know the duration that they expect the service to be cancelled. We will then pass on this information to affected students and caregivers as soon as possible.
We are very aware of school transport's vital role in our communities and in support of our rural economies. The cancellation of any school transport service is something that our transport providers try very hard to avoid. However, the health and safety of students, drivers and communities are paramount.
Thank you for your assistance in preparing for the potential disruption in your school transport services.
