SEVENOAKS SENIOR COLLEGE
— SANTA'S WORKSHOP
1068. Hon SIMON O'BRIEN to the Minister for Education
(1) What is the
total amount paid, directly or indirectly, by or on behalf of Santa's
Workshop, or its former benefactor, Outcare, to Sevenoaks Senior College in —
(c) 2017; and
(d) 2018 to date?
(2) Will the
minister table an itemised breakdown of how the funds are apportioned for
phone, water, electricity, insurance and any other costs?
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question.
(1) The total amounts paid were —
(a) $588.74 in 2015;
(b) $658.01 in 2016;
(c) $642.86 in 2017; and
(d) for 2018, it will be billed at
the end of the calendar year.
(2) There is
no itemised breakdown of funds for phone, water, electricity, insurance or any
other costs. There is no separate metering of the Santa's Workshop
site. The costs are allocated to cover Santa's Workshop waste in accordance with a memorandum of
understanding between Outcare and Sevenoaks Senior College. In
determining how much to charge for the use of the facility, the value of the
activity to the community and the capacity of the user to pay were considered
as per the community use of school facilities and resources policy.
