CAMP SCHOOLS —
259. Hon MARTIN ALDRIDGE to the Minister for Education and
I refer to an advertisement in The
Weekend West on Saturday, 14 April 2018 inviting organisations and
businesses to register interest in leasing and operating six camps schools in
Bridgetown, Dampier, Geraldton, Kalgoorlie, Pemberton and Point Peron, as well
as Landsdale Farm School.
(1) Will the
government support financially the ongoing operation of these facilities when
and if they transfer to other organisations and/or businesses to run?
(2) Why has the
minister not taken a similar approach with Moora Residential College?
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question.
(2) The other
residential colleges across the state have significant unused capacity. The
Moora facility requires significant refurbishment for long-term use.
