A nearby private school has gone into liquidation throwing the school community into turmoil. Rumours have circulated over the last few months about the school being in debt and closing. This week the news broke on national news confirming what had been rumoured.
I am thankful that Erin's position is secure, her school is doing well. I attended the AGM tonight and the figures are all good. I caught the last bit of an interview with the principal on ABC radio this afternoon and he was full of concern for the students and families but I missed what, if any, impact it would have on our school. At the meeting tonight he dispelled any stories of our school taking over the debt/taking over the school/building portables on the oval/saving them from their dilemma. We are only able to take on 12 extras and the priority was the seniors. Mowbrays' 1000 students must be very distressed by all of this and the impact on the community will reach further than the school itself.
Time will tell their fate.
