Security fences are being installed at three schools under the 2014-15 program –Arawang, Mawson and Yarralumla Primary Schools.

2) The average cost per lineal meter is $250.00 (excluding GST). However, this cost will vary depending on the total length of the fence, the number of gates, the surface topography and the market competitiveness at the time of tendering.

3) The Directorate has a standard design for perimeter fences at ACT public schools. However, each school is able to nominate an alternative colour. There are variations to the design of some fences, such as new schools which reflect the overall design of the school and for heritage listed schools.

4) The school fencing contracts are tendered and awarded in accordance with the ACT Procurement Guidelines.

5) The Directorate does not have a preferred contractor list.

6) The perimeter fences at new schools are funded from the project capital works budget. New fences at existing schools are funded centrally by the Education and Training Directorate.
