Host Families Sought

Host families sought for 3 nights to welcome our Sister School students from Japan 22nd – 25th October. 2 boys are yet to be placed and we are looking for one or two host families. Your child does not need to be in a Japanese class as these students are looking for an Australian homestay experience. For further information or to express interest, please contact our Japanese teacher urgently on 6205 6484 or janelle.horsington@ed.act.edu.au

Silent Sports Challenge

Earlier this week eight students represented Dickson College in the Silent Sports Challenge.  The event was part of Hearing Awareness Week.  Our students played touch footy against the ACT Deaf Touch team.  Our students were required to wear ear plugs, were not allowed to talk and the referee signalled with a flag.  The students had a great time and they outlined the difficulties that they had on the field without being able to speak.  The afternoon was concluded with a pass off which saw a number of prizes won by our students.  A big thank you to Dave Boyle for organising this terrific opportunity for our students.

Changes to Action School Services

Your new school services network starts on Monday 1 September

Along with the new bus network, our schools network is also changing on Monday 1 September.

The new schools network has been developed over the past 12 months, with all routes, services and patronage being reviewed. As a result, some school routes have been redesigned or merged as part of our commitment to providing a more direct, frequent and enhanced bus network and to increase network efficiency.

For some routes where patronage levels no longer support a dedicated school route, students can use the regular route services. Approximately 59% of school student boardings are already on regular route services.

Getting ready for the new network.

ACTION can help get you prepared for your children to head back to school using the new network. From route change details, to checking and topping up MyWay cards, latest fares and bus safety tips, everything you need is here on the ACTION website.

1.Have a look to see if your school route has changed

To find out details of the changes to schools services from the current network to the new network by school name, check out the School Route Changes By School page.

2. Familiarise your with the new Network 14 school and regular routes

All new school service routes are now available on the Network 14 School Route Services page.

If your route has changed to a regular network route, those network map routes can be found on the Network 14 Regular Route Services page.

3. Check everything is OK with your MyWay card

Now is the time to organise a new or replacement MyWay card and to sign up for Autoload. Find out how to get the most out of MyWay.

4. Remind your children about the bus safety rules

You mind want to make with a few journeys with your child on regular bus routes and give them tips. Here's a helpful video on bus safety and etiquette.

5. Keep in touch with ACTION
