A school bus service is available for pick up and drop off of students at pre-arranged collection points to assist distant families with the travel associated with attending Insight Education Centre’s Berwick campus.
The bus route is determined at the beginning of each term, based on student demand. Families may complete the Registration for School Bus Services Form as an expression of interest in their child participating in this service, but this does not guarantee the availability of a seat for the child or the addition of new collection points.
The School Bus will stop only at pre-arranged collection points, which will be off main roads (i.e. public car parks). Children up to the age of 7 years are required to use a booster seat. Families should provide this for their child’s use when using the school bus service.
(please see https://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/safety-and-road-rules/vehicle-safety/child-restraints for Victorian legislation on child restraints).
