Community consultation outcomes for the Cannington and Maddington area

Community consultation outcomes for the Cannington and Maddington area

The Minister for Education and Training, the Hon Sue Ellery MLC, today announced the outcomes from the community consultation on public schooling in the Cannington and Maddington area.

This consultation considered the structure of education at Cannington Community College, Cannington Community Education Support Centre, Sevenoaks Senior College and Yule Brook College.

As part of the consultation, the community was invited to have its say through an online survey, community forums and meetings held with school communities, including parents, local Aboriginal families, school boards and councils and parents and citizens’ associations. 

Throughout the consultation process, feedback indicated that the community was supportive of change at Yule Brook College, and the College 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. 

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

In addition to the community consultation, the Minister received a letter from the council/board chairs of three schools indicating their support for this outcome.
