I refer to the minister's

college's future use?
(2) If yes to (1), what is the
(3) If no to (1), when will a decision
(4) Will the
minister provide a full list of all organisations and community-based groups
that currently occupy buildings on the college campus?
Hon SUE ELLERY replied:
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question.
(1) No. An
expression of interest to lease all or part of Tuart College was released on 20
June 2018 and closed on 10 July 2018.
(2) Not applicable.
(3) The department is working
towards finalising a decision before December 2018.
organisations and community-based groups that currently occupy or use the Tuart
College campus on a regular basis include the Graham (Polly) Farmer Foundation,
the Western Australian Secondary School Executives Association, the Grief
Centre Western Australia, Tuart Hill Swimming Club; Servite College, Young at
Heart, and the Stirling Toastmasters. I can confirm there will be no changes to
tenants' existing arrangements with the Department of Education. In
addition, other groups use Tuart College on an occasional basis.
