Getting To School
The Hunter Valley Bus Service transfers students to and from school. In the afternoon, students awaiting buses are supervised by teachers and placed on the correct bus. A strict code of conduct is to be followed by all students using public transport. Failure to follow correct behaviour may result in temporary or permanent travel pass suspension. An application for an Opal care needs to be completed online here.
For more information, contact us at St Patrick’s or Hunter Valley Buses on 4958 2057.
