Pedare Transfer Service

Pedare’s Private Bus Service can take students from Middle & Senior School to Cobbler Creek OSHC by arrangement, although most Middle & Senior School students prefer to use the FREE after hours library service to 5:00pm during school days. If you would like to organise a transfer from the Middle & Senior School please contact the Community Relations Manager, Julie Holland at Pedare.

The responsibility remains with the parents/guardians that their child/children are booked into/attend Cobbler Creek OSHC. Bus transfers are available for students seeking to attend Cobbler Creek OSHC from the Middle and Senior Schools to Cobbler Creek.
