More childcare centres in Canberra please!

By 16 July 2013

More of a whinge than anything. I know, shock and horror, a Canberran whinging.
I am looking for just one day a week in a childcare centre for my 12 month old. I have the other four days sorted with in home care but really wanted to have one day for her to socialise with other [...]

It’s scripture in school time again!

By 16 November 2011

To get it out of the way, I do not support any scripture in schools. I feel that religion is a personal choice and something that is managed by a family, not taught by random strangers at a public school.
I am curious to know how other schools in the ACT run the program.
The one my [...]

I am writing about a public safety issue.
On Friday July 11, my husband, my child and I were on a trip from visiting Tumut and returning to Canberra.   On the way home at about 6:30pm, my husband purchased fuel and snacks (value of about $80) from the Caltex located on the Barton Highway at Murrumbateman. [...]

Frank and Fearless on schools

By 12 May 2008

Seriously, where should a parent send their pride and joy to school in Canberra? Very hard to find real information on what schools are great and what ones are not.
We are not religious (as in seriously not religious on purpose).  It leaves only a few non-Christian options. 
I know Trinity Christian School through some older children [...]
