Boonah Bus

A bus from Boonah to McAuley College will cost only $10 per week in 2017!

McAuley College will provide a bus to transport students from Boonah to Beaudesert each week day during the school term.

The College Bus will collect student from Oliver Street, outside All Saints Catholic Primary School each weekday during the school term from 7.30 am, departing by 7.40 am. This will ensure the bus arrives at McAuley College between 8.10 – 8.15 am and give the students at least 15 minutes to get organised for the start of their day.

In the afternoon, the College Bus will depart from the front of the school at 3.00 pm, arriving at All Saints Catholic Primary School around 3.30 – 3.40 pm. Students can be collected from this point in Oliver Street.

Previously, we have communicated that this bus will be based on a user pay system. We are pleased to announce that Brisbane Catholic Education has offered to subsidise our families over the first five years to make the payment of these fees less onerous and support our inaugural families.

The cost of the bus was advertised as $600 per term, with a reduction offered if paid prior to the start of the term, reducing the cost to $500 per term. In the table below, we have provided the subsidised costs due to the generous support of Brisbane Catholic Education.

In summary, families will be required to pay $100 per term, at the start of each term, to uitlise this service for their son or daughter. The cost is a charge per student and families will be asked to register their child for this service by completing the attached form. In general, there are no daily tickets sold.

A reminder that all students travelling on this bus, as well as other buses must abide by the Student Code of Conduct, but as outlined in the McAuley College ‘Keep It REAL’ Expectations and that provided by the Queensland Transport Department.
