Answered on


483. Hon JACQUI BOYDELL to the Minister for Education and Training:

I refer to a news article in the North West Telegraph in July 2019 announcing, as part of the resolution of a royalties dispute between BHP and the state government, $15 million in funding to be allocated to repairing Hedland Senior High School.

(1) How much of the $15 million has been spent to date?

(2) Will the minister give an outline of all projects to be undertaken using this funding, including expected completion dates and total funding versus actual expenditure to date?

(3) Are there any separate works or maintenance projects planned at Hedland Senior High School that will be funded from another source; and, if yes, can the minister please outline them?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

We relayed this to the honourable member. I cannot provide an answer today in the time frame available, but I undertake to provide the answer tomorrow.
