Win-Win: Better Educational Outcomes and Infants Site Stays in Public Hands

Member for Penrith Stuart Ayres MP today welcomed the decision to retain the Ross Street Glenbrook Infants School site for educational purposes after the Department of Education and Communities decided to integrate the infants into the main Primary School site.

\”I’m glad the Minister for Education has listened to my views and those of the community in ensuring that the site stays available to the community for activities such as the Rotary markets as well as continuing as an education facility,” said Mr Ayres.

\”The Education Department will now consider a number of options for the site which range from using the site as a School for Special Purposes to Leadership Training. Crucial to the future of Infants site will be the ongoing use by community groups and I will be discussing this in greater detail with the Department and Blue Mountains City Council.\”

\”Following the decision to amalgamate the two Glenbrook public schools onto one site, we are able to achieve greater educational outcomes for the 250 plus students while keeping the Infants site for community group access and future educational programs, this is win-win.\”

\”I look forward to seeing the first group of Kindergarten students start at the main school site in 2013 and know that the School Executive and Teachers are already planning for the transition of the Infants to the main school,” said Mr Ayres.
