School

From pre-school to high school, a child will see on average 25 different teachers and be studying for 13 years in total from kindergarten to year 12, High School Certificate. If a child has special needs there may be more teachers and it may in fact be a longer road. Same can be said if a child is in a remote area or excluded in someway (language, ability, access  wise).

There are a lot of organisation’s that can assist and guide you on your choices for your child’s education.
