Industrial Action - School Closure Update

Public sector unions have called for stop work action next Wed, 3rd of April.  T

As a result of the number of our teaching staff participating in this action, there will not be enough teachers on duty at the school to ensure adequate supervision for students.

The Minister has decided that the school will not open until 11.00 am. 

Calows bus will run 2 ½ hours later than usual to provide transport for our Ravenswood families. 

Metro buses will continue to run as normally scheduled.

Important changes to school bus timetables and routes for 2019

School will soon be returning for 2019, and we wanted to remind parents and guardians of children that there have been some changes to a number of school bus routes and timetables around the State.

Detailed information on these changes (listed by school) is available online at:

www.transport.tas.gov.au/passenger/school_bus_service_timetables_and_information

Parents in Southern Tasmania who use Metro Tasmania, O’Driscoll Coaches (Derwent Valley Link), and Tasmanian Redline or Tassielink general access buses should also be aware that there were changes to these services over the school break, and this may also affect school travel.  Links through to updated timetables are available online here:

www.transport.tas.gov.au/project2018/route_information/southern_region_service_changes or if your students exclusively catch Metro buses, see https://www.metrotas.com.au/alerts/return-school-2019/

We also remind parents that in most cases the school bus network will commence operation on Wednesday 6 February, so if your child goes to a school that starts before that date, you should contact your bus provider to see if the service will be running.

  • If parents have queries about times and routes for their children’s services they are encouraged to first contact their bus operator (contact details are on the website).  They can also contact State Growth for further information or to discuss concerns:

 

  • Phone: (03) 6166 3343 between 9:00am and 5:00pm. Please leave a message after hours, or if the phone lines are busy.

 

For dedicated school bus services:

Andrew Mullen    Phone: 6166 4470 or email: andrew.mullen@stategrowth.tas.gov.au

For general access public bus services accessed by students:

Passenger Transport team    Phone:  6166 3343 or email ptscontracts@stategrowth.tas.gov.au

  • We remind parents that it is their responsibility to ensure that their children are put safely on the bus in the morning and are met at the bus stop in the afternoon. However, if, on the day, your child misses a school bus, contact the bus operator first, and then your school.

 

  • The changes to the network will be monitored and there will also be a process to review the new arrangements, and address any issues or reasonable concerns.
