Terms of use

The School Finder locates public schools in your local area. The tool also provides school information, such as the local enrolment area, contact details, whether there is a preschool attached, outside of school hours care information and so on.

By using this tool you are accepting these terms of use. They take effect from the date you first use the tool. We may at any time revise these terms without notice. Continued use of the School Finder after a change has been made is your acceptance of the change.

Google services

The School Finder uses tools provided by Google to perform certain functions. Users of the School Finder are thereby bound by Google's Terms of Service.
