How to Order

We now utilise online booking and payment software called RollCall, which also allows parents to track their children’s bus via GPS, and be notified when they get on and off. All buses are also fitted with closed-loop CCTV cameras, to provide families with extra peace of mind.

A rechargeable RollCall ticket fob can be ordered from the School for $20, which can then be topped up with the amounts that suit you. The fob acts as the ticket for each bus trip.

To order your RollCall ticket fob, or for any further enquiries, please email Carol Brown at our Secondary Campus Reception at or phone 8278 2233.
