As 2023 comes to a close, the excitement of moving from primary to high school is building. For many students, it also means taking that big step towards independent travel on public transport in 2024.
To ease this transition, the Get on Board website is here to help answer all your questions. Louise Madden from Transperth Education understands the concerns of parents.
"Sending a child off on the bus or train for the first time can be daunting, but preparation is key,” she says.
“The website offers a dedicated parents’ section with resources to get you ready. Students can even have fun while learning about using Transperth through an interactive game.”
“We also have a brand new Schools Essential Kit to help parents support their children get to grips with public transport for the first time.”
Teachers, visit Get on Board Transperth and share these terrific resources with your parents and students as the school year draws to a close.
Helpful Tip for Parents: Plan your journey to the new high school no earlier than two weeks before the start of school, as changes occur across the bus network in January.
