School bus

The RSAS Team provides a bus service for all Tiwi students. Please let the RSAS Team know if a child in your care requires collection. Children catching the bus must be ready and waiting at the front of the house by 7.30 each morning.

Family follow-up visits

After roll call each morning, RSAS staff follow-up with the families of children not at school. Where possible, they will support the child to get to school.

All follow-up visits are reported to the school and Truancy Officers. Our aim is to assist with various support service referrals and identify ways to support child/family and community to overcome attendance issues.

Additional follow up visits and service referrals

Throughout the day RSAS also assist with various follow up visits as requested by schools and as needs are identified. 

No school no shop

RSAS Staff visit local store/s to make sure children are not hanging around and encourage them back to school and talk with community members. RSAS ‘no school no shop’ signs are displayed at stores and takeaways, RSAS continue to work with community leaders and store managers to ensure this policy is enforced.
