Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2007 Week 9 Hansard (27 September) . . Page.. 2855..


Planning work is currently in progress on the so-called 'wellbeing precinct' in Gungahlin Town Centre, which will include a secondary college, library, an enclosed oval, and a leisure centre that is expected to incorporate a swimming pool. This work will guide government planning for the provision of swimming facilities in Gungahlin.

(2) ACTPLA's building records, dating back to settlement in Gungahlin from May 1993, indicate that 257 pools have been approved by private building certifiers.

(3) The process for determining the provision of aquatic facilities would normally be through the development of a strategic plan similar to that prepared in 1997, involving a suitably experienced leisure planning consultant. This would include an analysis of current provision, along with current and projected future demand and based on comparisons with other jurisdictions, the development of a recommended scheme of works over an appropriate period of time.

Education—student qualifications

(Question No 1651)

Dr Foskey asked the Minister for Education and Training, upon notice, on 22 August 2007:

(1) How many students across the ACT secondary school system have been awarded ACT Year 10 certificates in each of the past five years;

(2) How many students across the ACT secondary school system have been awarded ACT Year 12 certificates in each of the past three years;

(3) Are those statistics requested in parts (1) and (2) displayed in the Department of Education and Training (DET) annual reports; if so, where; if not, why not, and will they be in the future;

(4) For each of the years from 2002 to 2006, how many of the students who received an ACT (a) Year 10 certificate were enrolled in Year 11 in the ACT senior secondary system in February of the year following the receipt of their Year 10 certificate, (b) ACT Year 12 certificate were classified as mature-age students and (c) Year 12 certificate did not gain an ACT Year 10 certificate two years prior to receiving their Year 12 certificate;

(5) For each of the years from 2002 to 2006, what percentage of ACT system students (including those resident in NSW) who completed (a) Year 10 (in terms of enrolment or attendance) actually received an ACT Year 10 certificate, noting recent DET annual reports provide the percentages sought here for indigenous students and non-indigenous students, but not for all students and (b) Year 12, in terms of enrolment or attendance, actually received an ACT Year 12 certificate;

(6) Are students ever awarded both a Year 12 certificate and a Secondary College Record in the same year; if so, how many cases have there been of such dual awarding in each year from 2002 to 2006;

(7) For each of the years from 2002 to 2004, how many of the students who received an ACT Year 10 certificate received an ACT Year 12 certificate two years later.
