Four vans, five weeks: we’re hitting the road. Between now and when we arrive in Canberra on the 18th of March, we’ll cover over 23,000km across every state and territory.
As we travel, we’ll be connecting with communities the length and breadth of the country to build support for action on Gonski by the Abbott Government and state and territory governments.
We have a five week national tour planned, arriving in Canberra ahead of the May budget where the future funding of all schools will be decided. In addition to visiting a multitude of schools along the way, we also have a series of public events scheduled.
Here are the highlights for the coming week. We'll update this page with coming events as the tour progresses.
