Transport

Drop-off and pick-up by car

We make it easy and safe for your kids to get to school and back home.

Our school drop-off zone makes drop-off and pick-up easy. As an off-street zone in a carpark, it is both safe and convenient. It allows you to drop-off and pick-up your child within the school grounds without stepping out of your car.

Private bus service

We run a private service of five buses for families living on the North Shore and in the North Beaches who are not served by commercial or governmental transport.

The morning bus service drops students at the Westmoreland Avenue entrance. A teacher on duty escorts students from the Junior Schools to the buses on Westmoreland Avenue each afternoon.

Bus costs

The costs per trip (including GST) for 2017 are:

Fare TypeCost
Booked Fare$4.25 per trip
This is a flat rate with no discount for siblings.
Booked Casual Fare$6.00 per trip
This fare applies ONLY where casual bookings have been made using Skoolbag at least 1 workday prior to the journey and you have received a confirmation from the school.
Unbooked Casual Fare$15.00 per trip
For safety and capacity reasons we do not wish to take unbooked casual fares. There is a chance that students who arrive at the bus stop in the morning without a booking at least one working day prior may be missed and students who get on the bus in the afternoon may put the bus over capacity and require an additional driver to be sought without notice to drive a backup bus.

Charges related to use of the School’s private bus services will be billed directly to your school account. Parents will be asked to nominate the days of the week on which travel will be undertaken and these charges will apply regardless of whether your child actually travels or not.

Excursion buses

We have a fleet of seven private buses of various sizes, all air-conditioned, fitted with seat belts and driven by our own staff drivers. The Pittwater House bus fleet makes travelling to and from school, on excursions and to extra-curricular activities an easy, comfortable experience.
