Department of Education Media Release
5 February 2013
The Department of Education Deputy Secretary, Andrew Finch said today that the Department of Education monitors enrolment trends in Tasmanian government schools including the West Tamar region.
"In 2010, the enrolment trends in the West Tamar indicated that the combined primary enrolment levels have fallen slightly across Riverside and Exeter Primary schools and it is considered that the East Tamar area has sufficient primary school provision.
"Monitoring demographic changes including future demand and existing service provision is part of the department's long-term planning process," Mr Finch said.
