CASTLETOWN PRIMARY SCHOOL
667. Hon DONNA FARAGHER to the Minister for Education and
refer to the significant building maintenance and repair issues impacting
Castletown Primary School in Esperance.
(1) Has the
minister determined the reason for the significant discrepancy between the 2013
and 2018 building condition assessment reports in terms of school maintenance
needs and funding required; and, if yes, will the minister provide more detail?
(2) Will the minister provide a breakdown of the
maintenance works undertaken at the school since the 2013 BCA report was
finalised, including total cost and date of completion?
(3) As part of
the 2019–20 school maintenance budget, does the minister expect to
provide additional funding for repairs at the school; and, if yes, will the
minister provide a breakdown of the anticipated works to be undertaken; and, if
not, why not?
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question.
As the honourable member will be
aware, this question was raised by Hon Colin de Grussa during the budget
estimate hearings on 20 June 2019. At that time, I said that I would take the
question on notice so that the issue could be investigated. I can advise that
the investigation is underway.
