Regional Education Review visits Tasmania


West Coast and Circular Head residents are being given the opportunity to have their say on local education issues as part of an independent review into regional, rural and remote education in Australia.
Liberal Senator for Tasmania Stephen Parry said the review will consider the challenges, barriers and successes that impact education outcomes, including transition to further study, training and employment.
“Public forums are being held next week in Queenstown, Strahan and Smithton and I encourage those with an interest in the educational outcomes of students to get involved,” Senator Parry said.
“The review is being led by Emeritus Professor John Halsey of Flinders University, who has extensive experience in rural and remote education and is passionate about the sustainability of remote schools and communities.
“The review is particularly keen to hear from members of the education community, families and employers about how best we can support regional, rural and remote students to succeed in school and beyond.
The forum details are:
·         Queenstown on Monday 25 September 1 pm - 3 pm
Address: Mountain Heights School, 81 Conlan St Queenstown
·         Strahan on Monday 25 September 7 pm – 8.30 pm
Address: Strahan Primary School, 2 Bay St Strahan
·         Smithton on Tuesday 26 September 1.30 pm – 3.30 pm
Address: Smithton High School, Mill Rd Smithton
Professor Halsey is expected to deliver his report to the Government by the end of the year.
