Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on 13 September 2018

CAMP SCHOOLS AND LANDSDALE FARM SCHOOL — ANNUAL SAVINGS

804. Hon COLIN de GRUSSA to the Minister for Education and Training:

Notice of this question was given to the Minister for Education and Training on Tuesday, 11 September, so I hope it is in the file.

I refer to the minister's media statement dated 8 September 2018 regarding camp schools and the Landsdale Farm School, which states that a change in structure will deliver an estimated $3.18 million in net annual savings.

(1) How much of that estimated $3.18 million is attributable to Landsdale Farm School?

(2) Can the minister please provide a breakdown of savings attributed to each of the camp schools?

(3) Has this $3.18 million changed from the previous savings estimates?

(4) If yes to (3), can the minister please provide details?

Hon ALANNA CLOHESY replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question. I provide this answer on behalf of the Minister for Education and Training.

(1) An amount of $0.52 million.

(2) The information is provided in tabular form, with columns regarding the camp schools and the savings per year. I seek leave to have that part of the answer incorporated into Hansard.
