My constituency question is for the Minister for Education and it is in relation to the Warrnambool Special Developmental School.
In yesterday’s state budget the Andrews government fulfilled its election commitment to allocate $5 million towards this school.
That funding is much needed. The current school is located on the side of a hill, making it physically difficult to undertake a number of activities. Enrolments have increased significantly in recent times, and the question that is asked by constituents, particularly those who have a direct link to the school.
The question I ask is: what process and what time line will be adopted by the department and the school in securing land that is needed to develop the new school?
