1. Community consultation in the Cannington and Maddington area

The Minister for Education and Training, the Hon Sue Ellery MLC, has announced a community consultation to gather the views of local parents and community members on the current structure of public schools in the Cannington and Maddington area.

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

At present:

  • Cannington Community College caters for students in Kindergarten to Year 10. Students then need to enrol at Sevenoaks Senior College or another school for Years 11 and 12.
  • Sevenoaks Senior College caters for students in Years 11 and 12. A range of programs are offered.
  • The Cannington Community Education Support Centre caters for students in Years 7 to 12 across two sites. Students in Years 7 to 10 attend the Cannington Community College site and students in Years 11 and 12 attend the Sevenoaks Senior College site.

You are invited to have your say, through an online survey, where you can select one of the following options:

Option 1

  • Yule Brook College extends to enrol Years 11 and 12 students in the Big Picture program only.
  • Cannington Community College becomes a Kindergarten to Year 6 primary school and Sevenoaks Senior College extends to Years 7 to 12.
  • Cannington Community Education Support Centre offers Years 7 to 12 on the Sevenoaks Senior College site.

2. Cyber Safety 

Parents/carers may have seen media coverage over the weekend regarding a Western Australian Police investigation that has uncovered a series of online grooming offences against young people in the wider community. Charges of this nature are unsettling and we want to make sure that all parents/carers remain aware of the importance of cyber safety. I also want to reassure you that there is no indication that any of these grooming offences have taken place at a school.

I know you are best placed to talk to your children about cyber safety and there are many resources to help guide you through this on the Department of Education website.

Other online resources are available on the eSafety Commissioner website.

This weekend’s story may lead to children being more aware of these types of offences and wanting to disclose information. The Department’s parent helpline, 1800 882 345, is available for you to call if you have any questions or concerns, and is staffed by psychologists, child protection officers and principals. The phone line is available from 8.00am to 4.00pm this Monday to Friday.

If you have any general concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to contact me on 9351 2400.
