Ayr Bus & Weekly Boarding

Get more out of your school week and be home every weekend with our Weekly Boarding and Bus Service.

Weekly boarding is not only for students living out of Townsville. Quite often parents are challenged with working in remote areas or are required to travel on a regular basis. With such irregularity and uncertainty, providing a stable routine can become a burden on families and disrupt their child’s education.
Being a weekly boarder allows both parents and students to maintain some form of certainty and stability – especially knowing that the child has a safe, supported, and nurtured environment to live and study during the week.
