When are parents/carers notified of bus routes and student bus allocations?

Extensive mapping of addresses for those students requiring buses to travel to Iona College is undertaken by McHarry’s Buslines once Year 7 enrolment acceptances have been finalised. This data mapping enables McHarry’s and Iona College to carefully plan the routes and student allocations for the following school year. Once this is completed, parents/carers are then notified by email detailing what bus their young person(s) have been allocated – this usually occurs by the end of the first week of December . A Parent Information Sheet detailing the various AM and PM stop points, departure times and route maps will be attached to this email.
