Napoleons Primary School
Mr HOWARD — Members of the Napoleons Primary School community were distressed to learn that the school recently received advice that its only Mod 5 portable double classroom is listed for removal. The Napoleons school is a new school which was built by the Bracks government. The Mod 5 was built into the structure of the school and the school community was advised by department staff who assisted with the plans that the Mod 5 would stay. I recently met with school council president Joanne Gilbert, and she is concerned that predictions of the school’s future enrolments, upon which the decision appears to be based, are incorrect and that the school’s future enrolments are expected to increase. I strongly urge the Minister for Education to review this decision.
