Drop off and Pick up points

There are two drop off/pick up points at the College. Using the Auditorium drop off/pick up point helps alleviate possible congestion along Farrington Road. This situation can also be eased if parents are able to come a few minutes later to pick up their child. Traffic seems to flow more easily after about 3.30pm and students are supervised by staff while waiting to be picked up.

Kennedy Bus Transport

Kennedy now operates two bus services (independent of Transperth) providing an additional travel option for families in the suburbs of East Fremantle, Bicton, Attadale, Melville, Victoria Park, Como, Applecross, Ardross, Mount Pleasant and Booragoon.

Please see the following for bus routes and details.

Private use of this service is by arrangement with Kennedy Administration. Please complete the following expression of interest form.

Expression of Interest

Please note: As seats are limited, successful applicants will be notified via email. Once successful, your child/ren will need to add credit on their SmartRider at Beedawong Cafeteria before school or during the latter part of the lunch break (1.15 pm – 1.30 pm) prior to using the bus service.


All bike riders are required by law to wear a helmet. Bikes must be left secured with a strong padlock, at the rear of the College. The College takes no responsibility for their safety.

Student Drivers

Students of legal driving age who intend to drive to and from the College must comply with the College’s Student Driver Guidelines.  Students are required to obtain a parking permit to park on Murdoch University’s allocated parking area for student drivers.

Students are not permitted to drive to school until the Student Driver Agreement and Parking Application Form has been lodged and processed by the Administration office and the parking permit issued.

Students who intend to drive to the College should see their Head of Year for a copy of the Student Driver Agreement and Parking Application Form. A copy of the Student Driver Guidelines can be found here.


New students receive their SmartRider card in approximately the third week of Term 1. Students will still be able to use their SmartRider from their previous school, whilst waiting for their Kennedy SmartRider, provided there is sufficient credit on the card. The first SmartRider card is free through the College. Replacement SmartRider cards may be reordered through the College Student Services. Please bring a note accompanied with $5.00. Kennedy SmartRider cards contain an additional chip linked to our cafeteria which enables students to load credit for use in the cafeteria.
