The College now operates seven bus services. Our bus service takes in the Gatton area (including Tenthill and Placid Hills), Esk (including Coominya), Kentville (including Lake Clarendon), Fernvale/Lowood area (including Glamorgan Vale and Brightview), Rosewood (including Thagoona and Marburg), Brassall area (including Blacksoil and Walloon) and Minden. Our nine College buses service areas which bus operators contracted to the Department of Transport are not able to cover and bring in approximately 350 students each day. Parents using these services are charged a bus fee by the College. The College charges fares for these services varying from $27 to $40 per week per family (depending on the distance).
Department of Transport Bus Services six bus services conducted by local operators contracted to the Department of Transport also bring in students to the College each day.
Zischkes (Phone 5465 6519) operate bus services, which collect students from the Hatton Vale/Regency Downs/Glenore Grove and surrounding areas. These buses drop our students off at our school (from about 8:15am) on the way to Laidley. The reverse happens in the evening with our students being picked up (at about 3:15pm) after the buses have picked up from Laidley. The one service, which operates along Forest Hill – Fernvale Road goes into Laidley first and drops off our students on the way out of Laidley with the reverse happening after school. These students will arrive at about 8:25am and will need to leave the school at 2:55pm.
Laidley Bus Services (Phone 5465 1797) collects the students from the Laidley township and takes these and the students arriving from the Grandchester, Mulgowie, (both services operated by Laidley Bus Services) and Blenheim (operated by Gatton Buses) out to Plainland arriving by 8:33am. These students are picked up in the afternoon at 2:55pm. The changeover occurs at the Laidley District State School.
Students living within 4.8km of this College or the nearest State High School will need to pay the bus operators a transport fee, which is determined by Queensland Transport. The College has nothing to do with this charge. Parents are to contact the relevant bus operators for further information.
