Zed earmarks schools for re-opening

By johnboy - 5 September 2008 21

The ABC has word on the Liberals early musings on what schools they’ll re-open.

Melrose and Lyons are beyond salvation, but Zed has high hopes he can save Flynn, Cook, Hall and Tharwa.

Is there a quota in a promise to save Cook?

What’s Your opinion?

DMD – Cook school was at 97% capacity which was higher than either Aranda or Macquarie. Cook also demonstrated continuing enrolements which would keep it at capacity.

The closure of this school meant more demountable structures to be put in at Aranda which suggests they did not have the space to deal with extra students anyway.

The distance to be travelled is not such a big deal to a man of such grand stature as yourself although to a child an extra 500m-1km is a big deal. Throw in a couple of major roads and this can be quite dangerous to a young child. The hours many people work now means children need to be dropped off at school well prior to school starting and being in before school care. Just more cost associated with having kids.

Bindubi street does not have any sort of under/overpass meaning kids have to cross the road. There is no safer option. There is one crossing Redfern St altough the placement of this means children still then need to cross Lachlan Street to get to the school.

Stay on the drugs dude you’re commenting on something you have no idea about.
