Public meeting on future of Geraldton secondary schooling
Thursday, 6 November 2014
- Community meeting to be held Thursday, November 13
- Education Minister to share results of community survey
Parents and community members with an interest in the future of public education in Geraldton are invited to attend a community meeting next week.
Education Minister Peter Collier will visit Geraldton to host the meeting and share the results of a recent online survey about local public secondary schooling.
More than 300 people responded to the survey, and Mr Collier said it was important to hear the views of the local community about what made a good secondary school.
“I want to have a close look at education in Geraldton - a major regional centre of our State,” he said.
“This process is about looking at the way we deliver secondary education and whether it is most effective, or if we can do better for students in this area.”
The Minister said all students needed the opportunity to study a broad range of subjects, and have access to pastoral care programs and support services that parents would expect of a good secondary school.
- The meeting will be held from 6pm-7.30pm, November 13 at Geraldton Surf Lifesaving Club, 260 Willcock Drive, Geraldton
- Survey findings will be published online following the meeting at http://www.education.wa.edu.au
