Joseph Banks Secondary College is a busy secondary school with over 1500 students. This means that road safety is paramount and sometimes parking can be challenging. Parent parking for the Orientation Day is in the carpark adjacent to our College oval on Joseph Banks Boulevard, and access to this carpark is gained through the second carpark entrance from Joseph Banks Boulevard. Please do not park in any staff carparks.

If your child uses public transport, Transperth offers two bus routes, 390s and 391s. More information can be found under the bus timetable at http://www.transperth.wa.gov.au. Year 7 students will have their photo taken in the second week of school to get their complimentary first SmartRider. SmartRider cards are the only form of student photographic ID, it is used as a travel card for Transperth services, a library card at the College and a concession card at various venues.

If your child has expressed interest in our Aspire Program, Creative and Performing Arts, Triathlon, Soccer or Netball Academies of Excellence, acceptance letters will be mailed out in Term 3.  Timetables and a College map will be provided to students in their contact class on the first day.

We are looking forward to working with you and your child. Our teaching staff are very excited about the opportunity to be involved in Orientation Day which will be held on Tuesday 26 November 2024.
