Travel Policy

In regard to student travel the College has a strong tradition of policy and practice in pastoral care and student management. On this point we remain ever vigilant and alert in our management.

The College rule is students "come straight to school/go straight home” after school.

Students need signed Exit Passes to be out of the College and/or access the Chatswood CBD for medical appointments etc. They are obtained from the Front Office, endorsed by the relevant Guid Coord and are approved on the basis of a parent letter/note of request.

Prefects and Seniors act as Transport Monitors(Red badge) travelling with and looking after younger students.

At the beginning of the year all Junior School students are shown where to catch their respective mode of transport and those who need to pass through the Interchange are escorted and shown the most direct routes to take.

All students (subject to certain conditions) are entitled to free travel between their home and the College. To qualify for a free travel pass Years 5 and 6 students must either reside outside a 1.6 km radial distance circle from the College or be required to walk more than 2.3 km by the shortest practicable route.Years 7-12 students must either reside outside a 2.0 km radial distance or be required to walk more than 2.9 km. Appeals should be directed to the Ministry of Transport.

Applications for travel are distributed on Orientation morning in October for completion by parents.

Please note that any change of address requires a new application to be submitted. Application forms are available from the school office.

The transport operators charge a fee to replace lost or damaged passes. Applications for a replacement pass are also available from the office.
