Government’s $250 per hire insurance deal and (h) what is the breakdown of use based on (i) type or purpose for the organisation (religious, youth, sport, etc), (ii) size of the organisation (national/major, small local group, individuals, etc) and (iii) capacity for each organisation to pay for use.
Ms Berry: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:
a) As at June 2016 there were 450 ongoing hirers of school facilities. This number does not reflect one off hirers and is subject to change based on demand from the community.
b) The facilities at schools that are used by community groups typically include the gymnasiums and halls, multi-purpose rooms, meeting rooms and classrooms. Outdoor sporting facilities are also used by the community.
c) The Directorate does not hold this level of detail in their data. The request would require contact with every school and considerable time to collate the information.
d) The Education Directorate’s Community use of schools policies and procedures place a positive obligation on schools to make their facilities available for public use on a cost recovery basis where there is no adverse effect on the operation and management of the school. Principals may set appropriate charges for the use of school facilities. The Directorate provides indicative community and commercial guideline rates for schools. Individual school principals have the discretion to waive and/or reduce hire rates based on the marginal costs of usage or in consideration of non-cash benefits to their individual school, students and community.
e) The Directorate does not hold this level of detail in their data.
f) Applicants are required to have their own public liability insurance. Principals have the capacity to waive the requirement for public liability insurance for hirers undertaking low risk activity at Canberra’s public schools. Many community groups such as sporting clubs already hold public liability insurance.
g) The government’s $250 per hire insurance arrangement is an ACT Property Group process for use in two venues. The Directorate is seeking further information about applying this arrangement more broadly.
h) The Directorate does not hold this level of detail in their data. The request would require contact with every school and considerable time to collate the information.
