Our team of experienced, Registered Nurses provide a variety of services including accident and emergency management, primary health care and referral to other health professionals in liaison with the wider school community. The Medical Centre has a fully-equipped treatment room and a small ward of six beds in the Senior School and an independent Medical Facility in the Preparatory School. Our health professionals attend all sporting events across both campuses and a dedicated First Aid treatment room is situated in the Foundation Pavilion. We strive to provide a nurturing, safe and supportive environment where open communication and availability to all families is of the utmost importance.

Student Transport

By bus

Guildford Grammar School contract Horizons West to run comfortable bus services to and from school each day for students in both the Senior and Preparatory School. More information can be found by clicking on the image below.

Our current bus service routes include the following locations and operate in the morning and afternoon:

– Warwick
– South Perth and Victoria Park
– Muchea
– The Vines and Ellenbrook (mornings only)
– Kalamunda
– Mount Lawley and Maylands
– Stirling

For a detailed list of bus routes and schedule, please click here.

Using the Swype Cloud App, families can track live locations of the School buses and top up payments for using the bus. This will link to a student’s SmartRider to tag on and off the bus.

For more information on how to use the App or the Web based portal, please click below.

Please note, all bus timetables are subject to road, weather and traffic conditions at all times.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have bus tickets remaining from previous year, can I use them?
Previous bus tickets will not be able to be used with the new system, however can be returned to the School and refunded. Please visit the Finance Office to receive your refund.

My child does not have a SmartRider, what do I do?
All students that are new to the School in 2024 will receive their SmartRider in the first few weeks of school. If your child is an existing student and has lost or misplaced their SmartRider, a new one can be arranged through Student Services. 
Students who are waiting for a SmartRider can still access the bus by giving their name to the bus driver. Families need to still go through the app, login and upload funds.

Please note, students who already have a SmartRider, not issued through the School, will see their old one stop working on Transperth services once the order for the new one is processed. This process can take approximately 7+ days depending on the number of orders they currently have, and Australia Post. Physical tickets will need to be used with Transperth in the meantime. 

Can I use my child’s Transperth balance to pay for the Horizons West Guildford School Bus?
No, although the same physical card is used, the Transperth balance on the student card is separate to the Horizons West Bus balance. Horizons West SmartRider balances can be topped-up using the Swype App.

Seesaw

Within the Preparatory School, Seesaw is utilised as an ongoing learning journey and assessment portfolio. The purpose of sharing this journey is to showcase our learning experiences and to provide updates on your child’s learning and progress, as well as the level they are working at.

Teachers and students share responsibility for uploading evidence of learning and this typically includes a range of work samples, assessment tasks, photos and videos of learning in action, as well as activities completed on the Seesaw platform.

In the Senior Primary Years (Year 3-6), there is also the opportunity for parents and students to comment on their learning which helps to foster the important connection between home and school and further engage students in reflection. Here are instructions to get you set up:

SEQTA Academic Reporting

SEQTA provides Senior School parents with information on students’ reports, timetables, assessments and homework. Preparatory School parents are also able to view their child’s reports online using SEQTA. The tool can be accessed using the same login details as Online Forms.

Parents new to the School will receive their login details before their child’s start date. If you are unsure of your login details, call Reception on: (08) 9377 9222 or email: reception@ggs.wa.edu.au to reset your password.

Sports Training & Fixtures

The sports website provides instant access to all sporting fixtures, team selections, results, maps, bus departure times and information from one central location. This is your primary tool for any sports related information.

Team sheets are also listed on the website and are password protected. Please use the password that has been provided at the start of the year. If you are unsure of what this is, please contact the Community Relations team: communications@ggs.wa.edu.au.

To view fixtures for a particular day, click on the day you are interested in and click the Details tab. This shows the venue and whether it is a home or away fixture. For away fixtures it will also show a map of our opponent’s school. You can view the team selected for each fixture by clicking on the blue icon and entering the password.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have bus tickets remaining from previous year, can I use them?
Previous bus tickets will not be able to be used with the new system, however can be returned to the School and refunded. Please visit the Finance Office to receive your refund.

My child does not have a SmartRider, what do I do?
All students that are new to the School in 2024 will receive their SmartRider in the first few weeks of school. If your child is an existing student and has lost or misplaced their SmartRider, a new one can be arranged through Student Services. 
Students who are waiting for a SmartRider can still access the bus by giving their name to the bus driver. Families need to still go through the app, login and upload funds.

Please note, students who already have a SmartRider, not issued through the School, will see their old one stop working on Transperth services once the order for the new one is processed. This process can take approximately 7+ days depending on the number of orders they currently have, and Australia Post. Physical tickets will need to be used with Transperth in the meantime. 

Can I use my child’s Transperth balance to pay for the Horizons West Guildford School Bus?
No, although the same physical card is used, the Transperth balance on the student card is separate to the Horizons West Bus balance. Horizons West SmartRider balances can be topped-up using the Swype App.
