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.

For parents and carers of younger children

Discuss with your child how to be safe when:

Also talk about and practise:

  • safe travel routes
  • plans for when unexpected things happen
  • what to do in wet weather.

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.

School Student Transport Scheme

The School Opal card gives eligible students free or discounted travel between home and school using the train, bus, ferry and light rail services.

Who can apply?

To be eligible for a School Opal card, students may need to live a minimum distance from the school:
Years K-2 (Infants)   There is no minimum distance
Years 3-6 (Primary)  1.6km straight line distance or 2.3km walking
Years 7-12 (Secondary)  2.0km straight line distance or 2.9km walking

If you live too close to be eligible for free travel, you may still qualify for a School Term Bus Pass, which offers travel on buses between home and school at a discounted rate for the whole school term.
