I get a fair amount from centrelink around $5000 + per year i asked them not to pay it until after june, now its coming up to christmas and i could really do with some of the payments. Am i able to change my mind and have them pay me what i should have been paid in the last 6 months? Or will they only pay me what i should get each fortnight and pay the rest once taxes are done?
Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
