Getting To School
Most students travel to and from school by bus. We please ask parents to regularly reinforce correct behaviour and good conduct on buses.
All students from Kindergarten to Year 2 are eligible for a free School Opal Card. Students from Year 3 to Year 6 who live outside the 1.6km straight line or 2.3km walking distance from the school are also eligible for a free School Opal Card. To apply for a School Opal card, parents/guardians need to complete the application on the Transport for NSW website here.
The major bus lines associated with St Brigid’s are:

Parents are to contact the bus company to determine which bus their child will catch. Parents who have to transport their children more than 1.6 kilometres to the nearest bus stop are eligible for a School Drive Subsidy. To find out if you are eligible to apply, visit transport.nsw.gov.au/schooldrive or call 131 500.
In areas where there is no public transport, eligible residents may receive a subsidy for transporting their child to school by private vehicle.
