Australian Schools

It would be good to have an authoritive source for all schools in Australia. http://www.myschool.edu.au/ might be a good place to start. In particular, the contact details and location of schools would be great. I've lost count the number of projects I've been involved in where the list of schools have been created from user input or manually created. A unique code of a school would significantly improve ease of reporting. ...more »
