Sydney schools to go high rise?

Mums and Dads at Ultimo Public School have been asked how they feel about the proposal, with some raising concerns about the safety and privacy of students.
Stuart Bocking says there is some merit in the scheme. Have your say on the idea.

Jason Morrison discovered how insurance companies are taking some people for granted, raising costs for ridiculous reasons. He speaks with a former insurance broker about the tricks of the trade being used.
Using office block space for schools is a very good innovative move. The children will be completely focused on being intensely taught for a few hours a day and then they can have their recreation after school hours. The concentrating students would not be distracted and roaming about, like in the current sprawling schools. Obviously this would be efficient in controlling the students location-whereabouts!! The Sydney U.T.S. Tower has lots of lecture-class rooms without all the distractions that so many current schools have. The end result would be a big improvement in the actual learning environment.Rae Thursday 18 October, 2012 - 10:47 AM
