With last year's NAPLAN results due to be publicly released on the My School website this week, the ACT Council of Parents and Citizens Associations is reminding parents to view the results with caution.

The ACT Council of Parents & Citizens Associations welcomes the announcement today of the phase-out of sugary drinks in schools and the installation, instead, of water bottle re-fill stations.

On Friday, the ACT Council of Parents & Citizens Associations will proudly launch its School Canteen Improvement Project, which will help save canteens in danger of going out of business. The project saves canteens time and money while delivering a better, and healthier, service.

Last night the ACT Council of Parents & Citizens Associations was awarded the overall Award for Excellence in the ACT Chief Minister's Inclusions Awards. Council also took out the Education and Training section of the awards, which recognise businesses, organisations and individuals which have excelled in encouraging, welcoming and supporting people with a disability in their community.

The ACT Council of Parents & Citizens Associations (Council) is pleased to see the release of the analysis regarding the submissions made by Council and 10 other organisations concerning the approval and registration processes for non-government schools in the ACT.
