Bus Travel

We have an extensive bus network servicing Ballan, Greendale, Bacchus Marsh, Melton, Eynesbury, Balliang, Bullengarook, Hopetoun Park, Werribee, Hoppers Crossing, Point Cook, Caroline Springs, Taylors Hill, Watergardens, Cairnlea, Sunbury and Gisborne.

Senior students who use these services are charged with ensuring that the journey is a pleasant one for all students. They take this duty very seriously as it forms part of the responsibilities determined by the schools peer support program.

To further assist our youngest bus commuters, a Junior School Teacher Aides collect Prep and Grade 1 students at the end of their school day to ensure they are on their bus before the Senior School dismissal bell at 3.15pm. In Term 4, Year 1 students independently make their way to the bus turnaround.

For further information on how the bus network is managed, please contact the Bus Administrator on 03 5366 4800.
