Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2011 Week 07 Hansard (Wednesday, 29 June 2011) . . Page.. 2833 ..

Mr Hargreaves: On the point of order, Mr Speaker, my question was indeed on—

Opposition members interjecting

Mr Hargreaves: Excuse me. I am talking to the Speaker. Thank you. Mr Speaker, I was talking about the KPIs in the new agreement specifically relating to the minister’s focus on property crime, and nothing else.

MR SPEAKER: As I say, my ruling is that, whilst I accept Mr Hanson’s point about being able to ask about the purchase agreement generally, I do not believe that the question relates to the purchase agreement. The question is out of order.

Ms Gallagher: Mr Speaker, I ask that all further questions be placed on the notice paper.

Supplementary answers to questions without notice

Government—ethical investment

MS GALLAGHER: I was asked earlier today in question time about an upcoming resolution at the AGM about Delta Airlines. My advice is that at this point it is not listed on the agenda for the 30 June AGM. Other matters are but not that resolution. I can provide you with further information in the future.

Schools—Tharwa preschool

MR BARR: Yesterday in question time, the collective team Green asked me a series of questions in relation to Tharwa preschool.

Mrs Dunne: About their sell-out of Tharwa?

MR BARR: Speaking of rude interjections! I undertook to get some further information for the members. I can advise Ms Hunter that there are currently 12 students enrolled in the Tharwa preschool program. My advice is that a quarter of them, three, are actually resident in Tharwa and the remaining three-quarters of enrolments come from Tuggeranong. There are currently two applications for enrolment for 2012, although I do note that the enrolment period is still open.

I believe Ms Bresnan asked me a question in relation to the curriculum. I can reconfirm that the curriculum is based on the early years learning framework, as I indicated yesterday, and is the same across all schools.

In relation to the premises at Tharwa, I am advised that there has been a significant issue in relation to termites in the old school building and there is asbestos present. For those reasons, a program of works is underway to rectify the damage caused by termites and to remove asbestos. The program has been temporarily relocated for one year to the Charles Conder primary school, which is the feeder primary school for Tharwa preschool. The anticipation is that the work at the preschool building will be completed in time for the site to reopen in 2012.
