With the co-operation of Shepparton Transit we have been able to establish a daily bus service for our school.
The use of the service is on a ‘pay as you go’ basis of $2.40 per day - or $1.20 for a one way trip. Weekly and term tickets can be purchased.
Children can use the service on a casual or regular basis. The service covers a wide area both north and south of Shepparton. One bus comes to the school in the morning, while two buses operate in the afternoon. They are known as either the S4 or the Raftery Rd buses. A bus list is compiled each day and children are checked on to the bus for departure from school.
Parents of Foundation children who intend on using the bus service are advised to have all relevant information such as name, address and telephone numbers and available contacts and drop off point on a laminated card so that any distress for the child can be avoided when travelling for the first time.
ENQUIRIES AND ROUTE INFORMATION SHOULD BE MADE DIRECTLY WITH SHEPPARTON TRANSIT ON 5831 2150.
Bus travellers are marked off the ‘Bus Roll’ by staff and settled onto the buses in an orderly and calm manner prior to departure each afternoon.
Travelling on the bus is a privilege and the school will support the bus company by suspending/banning students from the bus if there is evidence of negative behaviour.
A Bus Traveller’s Code of Conduct must be signed by the student and parent at the beginning of the year or prior to their first time on the bus.
