Exemplary behaviour is expected from all students while they are travelling to and from school. Therefore whenever students are wearing the uniform, it is expected they will represent the school proudly and that they will obey the school rules.
Students travelling to or from school by bus are expected to uphold school standards of behaviour. The school will treat incidences of poor behaviour on buses very seriously. Listed below are rules of behaviour for bus students:
- Students will be courteous and considerate to each other at all times.
- Students will obey the direction of the bus driver.
- It is expected that students will travel quietly and behave in accordance with school standards (including the proper wearing of the uniform).
- No food or drink will be consumed on the bus.
- Students, once seated, will remain seated. Students are not permitted to change from seat to seat during the journey.
- Students should respect all bus property. They must not interfere with bus seats.
- Students must not put feet on the seats.
- Students should take care of their belongings on the bus. When leaving the bus, students should check to ensure that they have taken all their belongings with them.
Queensland Transport publishes a Code of Conduct for Student Bus Travel. Its rules mirror closely the school’s rules, and provides a framework for enforcement of the rules on approved transport routes. A copy of the Code of Conduct is available on the Queensland Transport website – Code of Conduct. Queensland Transport
Rules for bus travel are designed to ensure a safe, comfortable and pleasant journey. Parents are encouraged to discuss the rules with their students, and impress upon them their importance.
