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.

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.

Transport NSW will be issuing School Opal cards to students eligible for travel under the School Student Transport Scheme via an online application process. Term and replacement passes will also be issued by Transport NSW.

The online application portal will automatically assess eligibility based on the following distance rules: (Years 7-12: you must live outside 2.0km straight line distance from home to school or 2.9km walking distance or further).

Parents, guardians and students over 16 years of age who wish to apply for a School Opal Card must apply on line at transport nsw

  • have not been sent an expiry notification from Transport for NSW.

Where a student meets the new distance eligibility, the system will automatically update their entitlement. If they do not meet the new eligibility, they will receive an expiry notification via email.

Students who have an entitlement approved under a medical condition which is due to expire will receive a notification advising them to re-apply.

Term Bus Pass holders will receive a notification to re-apply.

If students need to update their information or re-apply, they should go online to

Applications need to be submitted before 31 December 2019 to ensure student entitlements are updated and their current entitlement/card is not cancelled. If their application is submitted after 31 December 2019, the system will automatically cancel an entitlement/card and a new one will need to be issued.

Students in the Opal network applying for a SSTS or Term Bus Pass entitlement for the first time will receive their card at their nominated postal address. Cards will be mailed out from January 2020.

Students residing in Rural and Regional (R&R) areas should receive their travel pass at the commencement of the new school year from their nominated operator, this may be distributed via the school or sent direct to their address. Note: some R&R operators do not issue travel passes. Students/Parents should confirm with their nominated operator if they do not receive a pass.

Senior secondary student concession card is available for travelling outside of school hours.



When using public transport other than for school, secondary students aged 16 years and over are entitled to concession travel. Secondary students aged 16 years and over are required to travel with their proof of entitlement card.

For travel on Regional services, NSW secondary school students aged 16 to 18 years inclusive must hold the ‘Senior Secondary Student Concession Card’. 

To apply students contact the school office and provide their name, address and date of birth. The office will then process the NSW secondary concession card.
