Warracknabeal Special Developmental School uses Department of Education and Training buses to operate 3 country bus runs. The buses travel to and from Murtoa, Donald and Hopetoun each day to provide travel to students who live within our designated transport zone. Students are picked up from their home at a specified time each morning and returned home in the afternoon. A bus chaperone accompanies the bus driver and students on each bus.
For more information on the student transport system, please see the information listed below.
Specialist schools for students with disability
