If the Closed School Rule is abolished as advised by Dept Education - this will impact on the future enrolment of both the amalgamated school and of a school which will be nearer especially in rural areas - this would then impact on teacher allocation and future school accommodation needs.

all small schools under review should also be aware of this rule !!! if your school is closed the dept are now taking away the childrens right to transport to their new or almalgamated school! our school is at present under the closed school rule for transport and since the new budget changes we are losing at least one bus route to the school even though there are 23 kids on it!!!!!!!!!! also many kids are losing their eligibility to travel on the bus even though its passing their door.
