During the Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend the school is closed. Parents are requested to complete the travel form with details for travel for this weekend and the end of Term 2 and return Term 3. This form is to be returned to Miss Sommerville – firstname.lastname@example.org.
The following deadlines apply for both travel arrangements:

IMPORTANT NOTICES REGARDING LATE BOOKING REQUESTS:
Late bookings may be accepted for Boarding Students travelling to their home address up until the nominated amendment date. Late bookings will be assessed on a case-by-case basis based on train / coach occupancy and the ability for SSTS to safely complete the additional bookings. Late bookings cannot be guaranteed patronage on the SSTS coach services and preference will remain with the boarding students travelling home that made their booking requests by the nominated booking deadline.
To ensure the best chance of securing a seat on SSTS services, students should make their bookings by the submission date. For late bookings please advise our department at the earliest convenience and not wait until the final amendment date. Parents / Students requesting late bookings should also be advised to make a reservation on regular NSW TrainLink services (phone 132232) i.e train should we be unable to accommodate their request. Late bookings must be submitted on a separate booking request form submitted via email (preferred) or fax from the school.
SSTS understand that schools also have their own deadlines and requirements for student bookings. Whether you decide to advertise or accept late bookings is your individual choice. As previously mentioned, SSTS will only accept late booking requests via email (preferred) or fax directly from the school. Please do not advise parents to contact SSTS direct as it impacts on our ability to complete bookings for the students that made their requests on time and meet our own deadlines delivering safe and efficient transport.
