New Tooradin Bus Route for Newhaven College

Newhaven College has extended its travel service to include bus transportation from Tooradin via Grantville.

Principal Tony Corr says “As a school, we have always had strong support from families in Tooradin and surrounds. Until recently students were travelling independently to Lang Lang where they caught the school bus. We are so pleased we can offer this service to those families who have chosen a Newhaven education for their children. For many years the values of Newhaven College have aligned with families in this region. We are pleased that we can make access to our school easier for all those who live in the Tooradin area”.

Parent Rosey Cockerill is thrilled with the new service, "everyone is so grateful and happy with the bus service. The driver is lovely and having the bus close to home is just amazing!"

Check out all bus time tables on our website.
