School bus to the surrounding district

The school bus travels east of Ballimore. It is owned and operated by Langleys of Dubbo (Tel: 02 6882 8977).  If there is a change of routine for your child, please contact the school or Langleys. This applies especially to the younger children, who can tend to get instructions confused. There are safety requirements that must be obeyed by all children who travel on the bus:

  1. Stay seated at all times
  2. Wear fitted seatbelts
  3. Respect others and their property
  4. Talk quietly to those in close proximity
  5. Respect and obey instructions given by the driver

If a child cannot confirm to the above rules, the privilege of travelling on the bus can and will be withdrawn. 

* There are Government Schemes for subsidised bus and vehicle travel to and from school. Contact the school office for applications.

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

  • 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.
