MINISTER FOR EDUCATION AND TRAINING

LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY QUESTION

QUESTION NO 619

Conder Primary School - Landscaping

MR CORNWELL - asked the Minster for Education and Training on notice on 23 March 1993:

(1) Is it a fact that landscaping at Conder Primary School is to cost $1.4 million.

(2) What is the reason for this large expenditure.

(3) Is this expenditure part of the education budget.

MR WOOD - the answer to Mr Cornwells question is:

(1) No. The landscape costs are $619,117 made up from:

$186,866 for soft landscaping including irrigation, and

drainage; $56,074 for soft landscaping and paths between

the site boundary and the road kerb; and $376,177 for

hard landscape including paths, walls, fences, play

equipment, bicycle storage, seats, etc.

(2) The level of expenditure is reasonable for the provision of outdoor amenity to suit the schools needs and to provide suitable soft landscaping, mainly grass, to a site of that size.

(3) The landscape costs are part of the capital cost provision for this school in the 1992/93 Capital Works Program.
