Wait on school news

04 Feb 2016

Local parents are waiting to hear if the State Government believes Docklands needs its own school.

The Department of Education is currently assessing school needs in Docklands and surrounding areas and is expected to publish its findings early in the year.

The department’s review began last year and involved the formation of a Community Reference Group (CRG) comprising 17 members, including 10 Docklands residents.

According to a department spokesperson, stage one of the review included a detailed needs assessment of Docklands and surrounding areas. It also explored current and forecast government school enrolments, as well as current and planned school network capacities, gaps in provision and trends behind school choices.

“A draft version of stage one of the review was shared with the Community Reference Group as part of ongoing consultation,” the spokesperson said.

“The final version of this review is being considered by the (education) Minister and is expected to be published in early 2016.”

“In the event that it finds there is a need for school provision in the area, stage two will assess how this can be best delivered.”

The spokesperson said it was expected stage two of the process would be completed by mid-year.
