Please consult the Adelaide Metro website or Infoline to determine exactly which public transport your child will need to catch in order to get to school and home again.
During the first few days of school, Year 11 Peer Leaders assist Year 8 students to find the correct bus stop and catch the correct bus from Urrbrae. As many students will then need to catch a connecting bus or train, please ensure that you have worked out your child’s route with him/her well in advance – there may not be another Urrbrae student making the same connection who your child can ask if unsure. 100 and 632 services run during the school holidays, so some families will be able to have a practice run. Even if your child’s bus does not run during the holidays, it is worth scouting the area to identify the locations of bus stops, and checking to see how long it takes to walk there. It is also important that you and your child have a backup plan for the rare occasions when a bus or a train is missed.
Urrbrae dismisses students at 2:35pm on Wednesdays, and most bus services cater for the early dismissal. Please ensure that you check the Wednesday afternoon timetable of the bus that your child needs to catch.
