Different dayand age! In the late 40s we had a banking day at school. The
teacher had a deposit slip and our threepenny deposits were duly recorded.

The money and deposit slip was given to one us who had bike to take to the local postoffice for deposit.

The tuck shop operated in a similar manner, a kid was tasked to take the money to the postoffice.

They operate a business. If I owned the same value of real estate that they do then I would want a healthy return on my investment also. If they make the money then good luck to them.

Might be a Working Family doing that apparently-now-essential school drop-off.

Why? A business possibly providing a service to a school is gross to you? Strange.

I know of one education facility here in town that takes over $600k in cash enrolment week.

The same company probably is the one that picks up all the poker machine takings lost by working families at the ACT Labor Clubs and delivers them to the ACT Labor re-election fund.
Hey, Shane Rattenbury was educated at Canberra Grammar – perhaps he has donated some of his electoral allowance to the old boy’s society and this is it being delivered.

I’m pleased that my daughter’s school is introducing the ability to pay fees electronically. That is definitely a situation where risk is minimised through technology. Though I find it impossible to believe that people would pay fees in cash.

Is there an ATM at Grammar? That would explain the van.

Yeah, something to do with Gonski.

Q&A last night…
Turnbull: Where is money coming from for Gonski and how much will the miners pay this year?
Rudd:
