The Canberra Times notes an interesting change of direction for the “Save Our Schools” group.
The Government is talking about turning the Weston campus of the Canberra Institute of Technology over for use as an Islamic school.
Strangely when the government hands over unwanted facilities for Christian schools it passes without note.
But the SOS group, who have whined these many long years for disused school sites to be preserved forever as memorials to a departed era of education, suddenly want non-school uses considered.
- ”We think that the wider process that ought to be used now is to… look at a wider range of options and not just have a consultation on whether it should be suitable for a private school,” Mr Cobbold said.
