Tuesday, 7 August 1990


The Assembly met at 2.30 pm.


The Clerk: I inform the Assembly of the absence of Mr Speaker. In accordance with standing order 6, the Deputy Speaker, as Acting Speaker, will take the chair.

MR ACTING SPEAKER (Mr Stefaniak) thereupon took the chair and read the prayer.


The Clerk: The following petitions have been lodged for presentation, and a copy will be referred to the appropriate Minister:

Community Use of School Space

To the Speaker and members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory.

The petition of certain residents of the Australian Capital Territory draws to the attention of the Assembly that

The community is concerned that the criteria for the Schools Reshaping program as given by the Department of Education make no allowance for the use or reuse of School space by community groups.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to

Amend the criteria to allow for community use of School space, particularly use that enhances the educational experience of children such as the Aranda Music program and the Aranda After School Care program.

By Mr Moore (from 49 citizens).
