What guarantees will the Minister give to the community that after Ginninderra District High School is vacated and demolished, the Government will actually build the proposed replacement school.

Ms Gallagher: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

The government has proposed to close Ginninderra District High School and rebuild a new P-10 school on the site, and has committed $43 million to the project. The government is currently consulting with the community to ascertain their views on the proposal.

Ginninderra high school

(Question No 563)

Mrs Dunne asked the Minister for Education and Training, upon notice, on 26 August 2005:

Did the Department of Education and Training prepare a feasibility study for the proposed P-10 school to be built on the site of Ginninderra District High School before the plan was announced in July this year; if so, did this study include a consideration of alternative sites.

Ms Gallagher: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

The Government considered advice on the most appropriate site for the proposed P-10 school. The current site is large enough to allow for the construction of the kind of school envisioned by the government. Other potential sites would involve using land currently used for community sporting and recreation activities. The government is currently consulting with the community on the proposal.
