A new preschool in “rural Canberra”?

By nanzan - 31 August 2010 4

In Saturday’s Canberra Times there was a job ad for a position at a new preschool in “rural Canberra”, to be conducted by Blue Gum School. There were no further details provided about the school in either the ad or on the school’s web site.

Does anyone have any details about what and where this school is to be? “Rural Canberra” – does that mean Hall, Tharwa, Uriarra Forest, Pialligo…? And does it mean taking over a school facility that currently exists, or is there a new one being built out there somewhere as we speak?

Pretty sure it is in the now unused Hall school. Good thing. All localities need a local school as the glue that binds the community.

Helps Simon’s GHG target too.

There don’t seem to have been any refurbishment works conducted at the former Hall Primary School to indicate that anything is about to happen there as soon as next year.

Back when the schools were closed, the Tharwa community was all set to establish another campus of Blue Gum there. MiniStirrer Barr rushed through some eleventh hour legislation to stop them, so it didn’t go ahead. Maybe they’ve found a way around it?

Is this another revisit of that notorious aboriginal “bush healing farm” they tried to foist on us a few years back?
