Getting to school safely
Student safety is our priority. We encourage the whole community to be safe travellers on their way to and from school
As a parent or carer, you are responsible for how your child gets to and from school. Where possible, we encourage walking.
Plan ahead by discussing the following with your children:
- safe travel routes
- how to share the road safely
- alternative arrangements for when unexpected things happen.
For more information visit the Department's website on safe travel to and from school as well as the student codes of conduct when travelling.
Bikes are not to be ridden around the school.
When at school, your helmet must be left at the front office.
Bikes brought into school grounds by students must be placed into the bike racks provided near the administration block. It is advisable to have a chain lock attached to the bike for protection.
The school takes no responsibility for stolen or damaged bikes.
For safety reasons, you are asked not to bring skateboards, rollerblades, and scooters, or any other items that could cause accidents or hurt yourself or other students.
Buses and Bus Passes
From 12th May 2016 applications for rural and regional school travel must be completed online.
For any questions regarding current bus routes and times visit Berrima Buslines.
Approximately two-thirds of students travel to and from the school by bus. 12 buses in all arrive from 8.20am onwards and depart in two waves each afternoon. Students are expected to enter, leave and behave on buses in an orderly manner. Passes can be removed by bus personnel for misconduct.
