Parents of Prep students are welcome to drive into the school grounds (driveway entrance from Tyalla Place) and use the dedicated Prep car parking spaces to drop off their Prep children.
For all other students travelling by car, parents should drop them on Derribong Drive at the bottom of the school driveway. Please do not use the school car park to drop off your students, unless they are in Prep.
Please see the school office if you feel that accessibility issues mean you require a school parking permit.
Illawarra Christian School students may travel to and from the School by bus. A number of bus companies service the school. View bus routes here.
What is the School Opal Card?
The School Opal card gives eligible school students free travel on public transport between home and school on trains, buses and ferries within the Opal network.
Who can apply?
Students need to live a minimum distance from their school to be eligible for a School Opal card, as follows:
- Years K-2 (Infants)
No minimum distance.
- Years 3-6 (Primary)
More than 1.6km straight line distance or at least 2.3km walking.
- Years 7-12 (Secondary)

A new application is only required if the student has not had a School Opal card before.

A parent or guardian must apply for students 15 years and under. Students 16 years and over can apply for themselves.

- Once approved, a School Opal card will be sent to the address provided on the application.
Replacement Opal cards
If your School Opal card has been lost, stolen or damaged, you should apply for a replacement pass.
