Department of Education Media Release
30 Aug 2012
The Department of Education has provided regular updates about the new $13 million primary school at Port Sorell, General Manager Learning Services (North-West), Bruce Cameron, said today.
Mr Cameron said that the Future Directions Group, which included representatives from Moriarty and Wesley Vale primary schools, had met for 18 months to discuss long-term strategies for the educational needs of all students in the Moriarty, Wesley Vale and Port Sorell areas.
“In addition, late last year parents responded to a survey about where they intended to enrol their children for the 2013 school year,” Mr Cameron said.
Parents will be asked early in Term 3 to confirm their intentions for the 2013 school year.
“Throughout this year, regular updates about the new Port Sorell School have been provided through school newsletters at the surrounding schools to keep school communities up to date,” Mr Cameron.
Mr Cameron said that a community forum at the Wesley Vale Primary School Hall tonight would be another opportunity for community members to ask questions about the new school and to further discuss future educational provision within the area.
“Following recent information sessions, there will be an Open Day on the Port Sorell School site on 13 October where community members can find out further information about the new school,” Mr Cameron said.
