The cost of insurance is an ongoing issue for Schools. It formed a large part of the discussion on 16 June (Seminar: Crown Lands Legislation White Paper)

We recommend that periodically (or annually) you may wish to seek two quotes for your insurance coverage.

We have provided two intermediaries you may wish to contact prior to the next renewal of your insurance.

Community Underwriting recently advised us they were prepared to offer a 25% discount to AMISA members on public liability insurance. We quote from their correspondence:

They advised:

Our Non Profit division within Aon has developed packages of insurance specific to charitable, not for profit and volunteer organisations/agencies including work for volunteers.  Our insurers are familiar with the types of activities Non for profit organisations regularly get involved in therefore our cover is different compared to an off-shelf market product.

Premiums start at $750.00 excluding Government charges for $10million Public Liability.  Also, it is an automatic exclusion on all of our Public Liability policies to cover participation in sporting events.
