Bill: Education and Children's Services Bill
Mr GARDNER: I have a question about clause 3 that we might consider further between the houses. In relation to the definition of non-government schools on page 10, it has been suggested by a stakeholder group that the current definition of a non-government school—that is, a school that is registered under the Education and Early Childhood Services (Registration and Standards) Act that is not a government school—might be slightly broadened to include that a non-government school means a school and an education and care service. I put that on the record, and the minister can answer if she wishes. We could discuss between the houses that a stakeholder group has suggested that amendment, and if the government wishes to comment, then they might.
