Bus Transport

Majority of  our students at Sacred Heart Catholic School arrive and depart from school by bus. The school is served by 6 different bus runs, covering all areas of the Huon Valley from Dover to Mountain River, Judbury and Lucaston. Sacred Heart has the responsibility for the operation of four of these bus contracts which provide transport to and from school for children from all schools in the local area. All buses have seat belts and are checked regularly by our staff and annual compulsory vehicle inspections. Sacred Heart bus drivers are school employees and the school oversees all issues regarding the services, eg student behaviour.

These buses are also used to provide extensive educational experiences for the children, allowing them to participate in inter-school sporting competitions and activities, celebrations (both within and outside the valley), and community events, as well as the variety of out of school excursions and camps which are an important part of our school curriculum.
