Conveyance Allowance

Students attending Mater Christi College may be eligible for financial support through the Conveyance Allowance Program to assist with the cost of transport.

To be eligible for the Conveyance Allowance:

  1. “a student must reside 4.8km or more by the shortest practicable route from the College” and
  2. families must submit an application to the College by Thursday 1 March 2018

The Department of Education and Training (DET) pays the Conveyance Allowance to the College for distribution to families.

For 2018, please note:

  • public transport applications must include proof of purchase of a half-yearly or yearly Victorian Student Pass.
  • applicants who were declined in 2017, should re-apply only if they have changed their home address.

For private car and public transport travel, the College will allocate the full amount received from DET against the family School Fee Account.

For Mater Christi Chartered bus travel, the College will use Conveyance Allowance funds received from DET to reduce the cost of the Charter bus for the College and for families. All eligible student travellers must apply for the Conveyance Allowance by 1 March each year, and authorise the College to retain the allowance. This assists the College to continue to subsidise the cost of the Charter bus.
