Schools—canteen managers

(Question No 529)

Mr Doszpot asked the Minister for Education and Training, upon notice, on 9 February 2010:

(1) How many canteen managers are employed by the Department of Education and Training, where are they employed and how much did each cost, on average, in 2008-09.

(2) How many canteens in ACT government schools are run by volunteers exclusively.

Mr Barr: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) The Department of Education and Training does not employ canteen managers. While schools enter formal agreements with canteen operators, the financial viability of the canteen is the responsibility of the canteen operator.

(2) As at November 2009, canteens at 50 ACT government schools were operated by the schools' Parents and Citizens Association (P&C). Individual P&Cs decide staffing arrangements, based on local circumstances.
