Choosing a school for 2017?
In the ACT we are very fortunate to have a wide range of brilliant schools to choose from. Each school has their own unique philosophy, areas of speciality and history of academic achievement.
As a parent there are many decisions to be made before settling on the right school for your child.
All of our member schools hold a variety of school tours and open days so that you have the opportunity to take a look around, ask questions and explore the school that you are considering.
To make this process a little easier for parents, we have listed all of the open days & school tours on our Website (events) and Facebook page. These events also have a direct link back to the schools website for additional enrolment and booking information.
This information will be continually updated so that it becomes a centralised resource for parents.
School Bus Survey Update
Thanks again to those who took part in our School Bus Survey. This information was collated and presented to the Minister for Transport and Municipal Services - Meegan Fitzharris, the Director Public Transport - Ian McGlinn, & the Executive Officer of Infrastructure, Roads and Public Transport - Paul Peters.
The main issues of concern were related to capacity issues, children’s etiquette and punctuality. The routes that received the highest number of comments were the 880am, 883am and 639pm services.
TAMs are currently compiling My Way data for these specific routes. The My Way cards record the actual load capacities and arrival times.
We have also requested that TAMs compare & review the provision of morning & afternoon bus services between the Gungahlin area & Daramalan. These findings will be shared with you as soon as they are at hand.
We are always keen to hear from you.
