Question On Notice No. 266 asked in the Legislative Council on 16 August 2017 by Hon Nick Goiran

Question Directed to the: Minister for Education and Training
Minister responding: Hon S.M. Ellery
Parliament: 40 Session: 1
Tabled Paper No: 533- View tabled paper

I refer to the Minister’s answer to my question on notice No. 23 in which the Minister informed the House that 31 staff do not hold a valid Working with Children Check card nor do they have an application pending and they are all on extended leave, and I ask:

(a) on what date did each of the 31 staff commence their extended leave;
(b) how many of the 31 staff now have an application pending; and
(c) further to (b), on what date were the applications lodged?
Answered on 13 September 2017

(a) As at 29 August 2017, of the 31 staff reported, eight now have a valid WWC card. Two of the 31 records were duplicate entries, which occurred because one staff member had a change of name and the other was registered at two different sites.

[See tabled paper No. _________ ]

(b) One

(c) An application was lodged on 4 August 2017.
