CHILD PROTECTION —
CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE — ROEBOURNE
1305. Hon NICK GOIRAN to the Minister for Education and
I refer to the minister's answers
during the Standing Committee on Estimates and Financial Operations annual
report hearings on 14 November, 2018, when she stated that her department does
not know whether any of the six known perpetrators identified in Operation
Fledermaus attend the same school as their victims.
(1) Is the
minister aware that a briefing note that she tabled yesterday on behalf of the
Minister for Child Protection states that the Department of Communities advised
Roebourne District High School of all children identified through Operation
Fledermaus as victims or alleged perpetrators?
(2) Given that
the minister's answers to the Standing Committee on Estimates and
Financial Operations are inconsistent with the document tabled yesterday, will
she undertake to investigate this matter and provide an explanation to the
house tomorrow, before the house rises for the summer recess?
have already started that process. I think the discrepancy is that the school
was advised, but when I was providing the answer to the estimates hearing, I do
not think the people at the table had been advised by the school. That is what
I think it is, but I have asked for clarification on that.
