Osborne Primary – Is it a priority for Government

20 Jun 2017

My question is for the Minister for Education, and it relates to Osborne Primary School.

Prior to the last election the then education minister, the member for Nepean, committed some $960 000 in funding for maintenance works, which unfortunately this government has refused to deliver on.

I have followed this up on a number of occasions with the minister, most recently in an adjournment matter in February of this year.

The minister responded that the government is aware that Osborne Primary School may have additional capital and maintenance needs and that he appreciates the challenges but unfortunately there would not be any money, so I ask:

Will the minister advise the house exactly how many schools of the 1500 he referred to in his adjournment response are considered by this government to have a poorer condition and a greater need for funding than Osborne Primary School?
