DECD Buses to Outer Areas

The Port Lincoln DECD school bus service supports rural families who have school aged children living 5 or more kilometres from the nearest state school.

New enrolments to our College need to collect an application form from the front office to complete. Where bus space is available, new applications from Navigator College students will be considered by the administrating School, Port Lincoln Primary. A confirmation of your child’s bus travel application approval will follow. A service cost of $60.00 per year, per student is invoiced to the College from DECD. The College will then seek reimbursement of this amount from the parent/caregiver of the student using the service.
