The College has scheduled buses to/from the College in the Morning and Afternoon
The buses connect with two train stations - Mandurah & Warnbro
The College operates two contractor operated bus routes. Students catch the buses at the allocated bus stops as indicated on the route.
The Mandurah-Warnbro bus route includes the Mandurah Train/Bus station (uses the TransWA bus stop).
The Baldivis bus route includes Warnbro Train/Bus station (PM route only).
All students in Primary and Secondary College must be registered to catch the bus service. Due to legislation, all students catching the services need to be seated and have a seat belt allocated.
How to Register
To register for the bus, please email email@example.com and request access to our on-line system RollCall. We will send an email inviting you to create a profile and input your child/ren's details and allocate the bus stop.
Students must be allocated to a bus for the days and times they are travelling. Parents can do this through the RollCall App at any time. You will be given options of the frequency, days and AM/PM routes. Please tick all that are applicable.
What is the cost to use this service?
Payments for the bus are made through Main Reception at the College or phone 9540 4400 prior to students accessing the bus services.
Single Ride - $ 3.60
10 Single Rides- $ 36.00

Once payment has been receipted, the rides (Term, single, etc) will be allocated to RollCall electronically by Main Reception. Paper tickets will not be issued by the College.

All Students have been issued with a Student Card. These cards are used throughout the College - Canteen, College Bus, Transperth Bus and the Library. The Student Card has several chips embedded within. The funds loaded for the Canteen cannot be used for Transperth, etc. Students who borrow library books can now have their Student Card scanned to borrow and return books.
How do students catch the bus?
AM - Students need to be at the allocated stop 7 minutes before the bus arrives at the allocated stop. Students tap on using their Student Card on the device next to the bus driver. When students arrive at the College, they exit the bus (the bus driver will mark all students off).
PM - Primary students can meet out the front of the Uniform Shop. The students will be taken to the buses by a teacher on duty. Secondary students can make their way directly to the buses. Students tap on using their Student Card and tap off when they exit the bus. This is done at the front of the bus on the device next to the bus driver.
The College will communicate through the Newsletter and on the website regarding the bus services. The main portal is our website. When advancements are made to RollCall, we will advise parents using these methods of communication.
If the bus breaks down, etc, we will email families directly through RollCall. The email will only be sent to families who have a child/ren that have tapped onto the bus.
If you have any queries, concerns or feedback regarding the contracted bus service, please email firstname.lastname@example.org at any time.
