Message of support from Save Our Scools – Canberra
We have noted your struggle in the press and wish to convey our best wishes and support.
Our organisation was founded in a battle to save 39 schools in Canberra, Australia in 2006, and we have now branched out into broader education issues. We retain a firm commitment to the neighbourhood school.
Our website contains a large amount of material on our school closure fight (see ‘School Closure’ section on the website). Feel free to use anything of use on it for your struggle. In particular, a submission on the initial school closure proposal in 2006 (called Towards 2020) covers many of the general arguments governments and councils use to close schools and some of it may be of use and relevance to you. The submission (SOS submission on Towards 2020) can be accessed in the section ‘Submissions’ on the SOS website.
