Question: Errington Special Education Centre


Mr GARDNER (Morialta) (14:39): My question is to the Minister for Education. Why did the majority of the parent members on the Errington Special Education Centre governing council resign? Has the minister been briefed on the circumstances of the matter?

The Hon. S.E. CLOSE (Port Adelaide—Minister for Education and Child Development, Minister for Higher Education and Skills) (14:40): I am aware of the circumstances at Errington, and I think that members of the public will have some understanding if they have been following this matter in the newspaper. However, as the member is well aware given our discussion at estimates, there is a police involvement at present and I am simply not going to answer any questions that relate to Errington in public in order to make sure that that is able to take place without any compromise.
