Regional School Bus Program
Students wishing to travel to Cathedral College Wangaratta utilising the Government School Bus Program are required to fill in a Bus Application form available from the College office. Once completed, this must be returned to the Bus Coordinator, Ms Peta Cooke. Once the application is received, it will be forwarded on to the Regional Bus Coordinator at the Wangaratta High School for approval. Following this, you will be contacted by the High School informing you whether the application has been approved and if additional fees apply. If you live closer to another Anglican School you may still be eligible to travel by bus, however, you will be charged a fee. Our Bus Booklet is available for download here: Bus Information Booklet 2020
Benalla and Bright Buses
We are pleased to offer our families privately chartered buses from Bright and Benalla. Fees do apply for students who travel on these buses. An invoice for these fees is issued with school fees.
To be eligible to access the town bus, student’s must live more than 4.8km’s from Cathedral College. An Application for Permission to Travel and a Conveyance Form, available from the office, must be completed and returned to Ms Peta Cooke at the College. A bus pass will be organised on receipt of these forms. Students who live less than 4.8km’s from the school may obtain a Bus Pass from Fallon’s Bus Service for an additional fee, which needs to be renewed each Term. For times, please visit the Town Bus Tab on this page.
Shuttle Bus System
At the beginning of the year, students are given a bus pass for the bus travelling from Cathedral College to Wangaratta High School. In the morning, students are asked to get on the first available Shuttle Bus so they can get to school as soon as the bus fills up. In the afternoon students are to remain on the Shuttle Bus they are allocated, for roll marking purposes and safety reasons.
Parents/guardians are responsible for transporting their children to and from authorised bus stops and the safety of their children while waiting for the bus. It is important that parents waiting for bus passengers at a roadside bus stop wait on the same side of the road as the bus to prevent accidents.
Cycle to School
Students living in close proximity to the College are encouraged to ride their bike to school along the bike paths and leave their bikes in the bike racks on campus. Students should provide their own lock.
