Saving Glenora High

AT tonight's Derwent Valley Council meeting I put the following questions without notice to the mayor:
  • Will you make an immediate representation to Premier Lara Giddings to protest the proposed closure of the high school section of Glenora District High School as foreshadowed in today's State Budget?
  • Will you advise Education Minister Nick McKim of the importance of Glenora District High School being maintained in its current form?
The mayor said he would do so.

  1. So apparently, we have 4 weeks to convince the govt not to close our school! What a load of crap! This is just a token gesture to try and pretend the decisions have not already been made! They are just going through the motions! And The move to close the secondary school is the first nail in the coffin. Parents who are forced to send their secondary kids elsewhere will also send their primary kids on, so then the primary school becomes unviable. Families will move away, and small business in the areas will suffer. We can't let this happen!
