EDUCATION cuts will be the hot topic of a major public meeting featuring State Member Andrew Constance and Teachers Federation vice-president Joan Lemaire next month.
P&C organisers from both Narooma schools are hopeful that NSW opposition leader John Robertson will make up the panel of invited guests taking questions at the meeting on Friday, December 14.
Narooma Public School P&C president Emma Carr said: “We’re really worried about the effects of the state government’s plans to cut $1.7 billion from public education - this is something that could potentially affect every child at our school.
“We’re stoked to have Andrew and Joan coming to Narooma to talk about this issue and it would great to see John here too.
“We’ve approached every public school P&C association in the region and have had a really positive response because people feel so strongly about this.”
Christa Mood of Narooma High School P&C said: “What we really want to see is people voting with their feet and coming along in droves to ask questions at this meeting.
“I’d urge everyone interested in the future of public schools and TAFEs to come along for an hour or so and make their feelings known.”
The meeting will be held at Narooma Golf Club on Friday, December 14 from 6.30pm.
