Cannington community has its say in consultation: results announced

WA Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery has announced the results from a consultation process for public secondary schools in the Cannington area.

Based on the findings, there will be no change to Cannington Community College, Sevenoaks Senior College or Cannington Community Education Support Centre.

The community was supportive of change at Yule Brook College which will extend to provide the Big Picture program for Year 11 and 12 students.

It is anticipated this change will be implemented for the start of the 2022 school year.

The eight-week consultation involved school communities, including parents, prospective parents, local Aboriginal families, school boards and councils, and parents and citizens’ associations, from primary and secondary schools in the Cannington area and is the result they had called for.

Staff and other community members were also invited to provide their opinions at community forums and in an online survey.
