Today is the day they’re supposed to find out the new Priority Enrolment Areas for Canberra public schools.
This affects huge numbers of Canberrans after last year’s school closures. Staff are moving schools, parents need to make decisions about risking an out-of-area application for a better school vs their new “local” (which may be across two suburbs and several major roads and a backwards drive from the route to work)…
I went to the DET website’s What’s New page and there’s a link to Priority Enrolment Areas. The page was last updated on 27/01/2006 (wierd enough). But it still lists schools that were closed last year – it’s not a new list at all!
I phoned DET to find out, but their lines are busy with teachers trying to find out where they’re working next year. Update will be posted when I get a link to an updated PEA list…..
