The app is also handy if you’re doing the pick up from the station or bus stop. You can see exactly how far away the service is so you can make sure you get there on time.

Smart Riders

Smart Rider cards are issued free to new students. Cards are printed plastic and should last for four school years if treated the same as any bank, credit card. There will be a charge of $5 for any replacement Smart Rider
cards due to loss, damage or defacement.

Riding or Driving to School

If your child rides a bike or scooter to school, it is your responsibility to ensure that these are in a roadworthy condition, and children wear a helmet. They should have a chain to lock their bikes to the bike racks provided and they are not permitted to access them during school hours.

Students who drive their own vehicle to school are not permitted to park in designated staff parking areas. Specific bays inside the school grounds have been allocated to students but they must first apply for a Student Parking Permit prior to bringing their vehicle onto school grounds. Street parking bays are also available along Redcliffe Avenue.
