Bus routes directly to/from the school are operated by Hillsbus - see attached timetable.
Families that are coming from Riverstone Area will need to use 741 - Oakville to Riverstone via Maraylya & Box Hill provided by Busways.
All bus services will be reviewed over Term 4 and the Summer/Christmas holiday break. We strongly recommend you apply for or update the School Travel Pass as soon as possible to provide Transport NSW the data needed to justify more services.
For further information, please use the Transport NSW Trip Planner which will assist you in determining which bus routes are available.
Students catching the bus should enter the school via Gate 6 located on Fontana Drive (see below map).

School Travel Pass
The School Student Transport Scheme (SSTS) gives eligible school students free or subsidised travel between home and school.
You need to live a minimum distance from school to be eligible for a free school travel pass. The minimum distance varies according to the year/grade you are enrolled in, in that calendar year:
- Years K to 2 (Infants): no minimum distance
- Years 3 to 6 (Primary): 1.6 kilometres straight line distance or 2.3 kilometres walking or further
- Years 7 to 12 (Secondary): 2 kilometres straight line distance or 2.9 kilometres walking or further.
You can apply for a school bus here - Apply for a School Travel Pass.
Students are required to have their opal cards on them each time they get on a bus. Students may be refused entry if they do not have a valid opal card. Hillsbus Supervisors frequent these services on a regular basis. If students lose their opal card they need to apply for a replacement immediately.
Students will need to tap on, each time they get on the bus. Tapping on ensures that NSW transport is monitoring student numbers. If students do not tap on we may lose services.
Pick Up/Drop Off
The Primary Kiss and Drop area is on Lakefront Crescent near Gate 1.

Riding a Bike/Scooter or Walking to school
Students are encouraged to ride their bikes and scooters to school. There are 252 bicycle parking rails located in the school grounds. Students riding/walking to school should enter the school via Gate 2 located on Lakefront Crescent and park their bike/scooter in an available parking rail within school grounds next to Block B.
When students arrive at school on the front concrete paths outside the site (before entering through Gate 2), they must get off their bikes/scooters and walk them into the school grounds. RIDING IS NOT PERMITTED IN SCHOOL GROUNDS.
Students must ensure that they are wearing a helmet whilst riding to school and we ask that parents enforce this rule. Any student caught without a helmet may be banned from riding for a period of time.
Students are responsible for providing their own locks, the school will take no responsibility for stolen items where locks were not provided.
We ask that parents have a discussion with your child around bike safety. Please read the attached fact sheet for your perusal: Safety on wheels - Information for parents and carers.
