Primary School Enrolments The Depa1"tment of Education has a Policy of admitting children to Primary Schoo~ thr?ugh the year at the age of five. Commencing with the 1976 School year conditions of entry were laid down as follows: A. For those children who turn 5 on or before February Ist, parents will enrol their children at the School before the commencement of the academic year, B. For those who turn 5 after February Ist there will be no direct entry to Primary School, Pupils are admitted to year 1 class via Preschool after discussion between The Principal, Pre-school Teacher, Infant Teacher and Parent, children being transferred on a basis of readiness, The Princial can arrange for transfer of students from Pre-school on a terminal, continuous, or regular interval basis, As a reult of the regulations the Department foresaw the possibility that some children would be transferred to year 1 classes from Preschool p1"'ior to the fifth birthday, while other children remain in Pre-school for a considerable period efter turning five.. Children transferring f1"om interstate etc, follow these proceedures,however children already at school will be admitted as a transfer student. The system is designed so that all children spend a minimum of sevEon years in Primary classes in addition to Pre-school, Students are classed as in year 1 until they have completed one entire February - December academic year, Students entering Primary School part way through the year thus remain in year 1 longer than -one year. Students, however, because of their ability and progress may be at different levels in the various subjects, (Source: Education Department Circular 75/223) Progress Party Activities The Progress Party recently accused the C,L.P. and the A.L.P. of having Sherwood Forest mentalities, Both parties saw subsidies as the answer to any and every problem. Small business, cattle men and consumers all faced problems and extra costs because of remoteness and the fact that nature has been ungenerous to the N,T, However, the answer lies in removing some of the barriers rather than giving handouts. Reduction of taxes of all kinds, and declaring tax holidays for new and developing programmes, similar to those existing in S,E. Asia, and Canada, are preferable to sub.sidies. If the N.T. is to have a future at all our leaders have to stop thinking in a negative manner. The N. T. has a tremendous future if only the shackles placEtl onus by Canberra could be broken, Robin Hood died 600 years ago, however, the Government, instead of allowing his principle to die with tim, have developed a more tragic slant. They now rob Peter .!l9 Paul with great equinimaty, The Progress Party stands for reduction in taxation and big Government, to be achieved efficently, but with the minimum disruption to the community. People of Australia pay 50'/o of their incomes from all sources in direct and indirect taxes, As well, they pay approximately 15% extra tax by inflation. Giving more subsidies means an increase in taxes, or inflation, or both. l Authorised by B. Duck, Secretary. . .
