Getting to and from school safely

As a parent or carer, it’s your responsibility to get your child to and from school safely. Student safety is our priority.

Keep our school community safe by:

  • driving and parking safely, even if it means parking further away and walking the rest of the way to school
  • being a good role model
  • never calling your child from across the road
  • using the safest place to cross the road.

Subsidised school travel

Transport for NSW provides subsidies to assist school students.

  • The School Student Transport Scheme provides eligible students with free or subsidised travel on public transport between home and school.
  • The School Drive Subsidy may help towards the costs of driving children to school if you live in an area where there is no public transport.

Transport to and from school

St Ives has a unique drawing area with some students travelling considerable distances. We have designed a system where those that travel the furthest on the northshore line are placed on our earliest buses. Many students travel by train and bus to SIHS, so it is unlikely that your child will be travelling alone.

Morning buses transport students to Yarrabung Road from locations such as Gordon Station and Terrey Hills. The afternoon buses leave Yarrabung Road outside the school between 3:20pm - 3:45pm (Mon, Wed-Fri) and after 2:15pm on Tuesdays.

Students are supervised on the bus lines until the arrival of their particular bus. The majority of buses, pick up and drop off students at Gordon Station. Timetables for various transport providers can be accessed by using the links below:

Early morning travel for band rehearsals
