To ask the Minister for Children and Early Childhood Development: Has the minister received advice from the department in relation to identifying and purchasing land for the new Barwon Heads kindergarten; if so —
(a) when will this land be purchased; and
(b) when will the construction of this new kindergarten commence.
I am informed as follows:
A subcommittee consisting of the school principal, school council president, parent on school council, two staff members on school council, City of Greater Geelong officers, representatives of the Barwon Heads Kindergarten Futures Committee and the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development is currently working on these and related issues and will work constructively with other interested parties.
