Delighted Minister for Education has brought forward the new Charlesland Secondary school opening to 2020. I have been lobbying on behalf of the many worried parents who were told they were 80th on the waiting lists for the 2 Greystones Schools.
I zoned a 5ha. site for this 15 years ago next to the sports facilities and I have been urging the Department to buy this for years. Currently it has temporary planning permission for use as a builders yard. I expect it will open in temporary facilities. This will be the 5th big school to open in the town in 12 years, a big Government Investment in our area. Catchment includes Delgany & Kilcoole. Patron bodies have to apply before 28th August. Following that parents can vote.
