School Bus

Children who live on the Princes Highway (between the corner of Lakes Tyers Beach Rd and Nowa Nowa) can travel to school on the Lake Entrance Secondary College Bus depending where they live on the highway. 
Check at the office for eligibility.

Dyson's Bus

The school introduced a new fee paying bus service in 2007 that caters strictly for children attending Toorloo Arm Primary School. The Lakes Entrance Service starts from the highway at Forestec (opp Tambo Lodge) and picks up students in Lakes Entrance and Lake Bunga. The Lake Tyers Beach service commences after the Lakes Entrance and Lake Bunga children have been dropped at school.
