    Community to have say on John Tonkin College

    13/10/2016 10:35 AM
    • Parents and community to be consulted about the structure of John Tonkin College in Mandurah
    • Online survey opens today

    Education Minister Peter Collier today invited local parents and the community to have their say on the current structure of secondary education in Mandurah.


    An online survey, which opens today for two weeks, will allow all opinions on the current structure of John Tonkin College to be heard.


    "I know parents are very passionate about their children getting the best education," Mr Collier said.


    John Tonkin College currently operates across two sites.


    The Tindale site caters for students from Years 7 to 9.  Students from Years 10, 11 and 12 are on the Mandurah Education and Training site alongside the John Tonkin Education Support Centre, South Metropolitan TAFE and Murdoch University.


    "I would like to know from the community whether the current structure is helping their children reach their goals, or if they think the college should be located on one site," the Minister said.


    Mr Collier said if any parents or members of the community did not have access to the internet, they could contact John Tonkin College to complete the survey there.


    The survey will close on October 28, 2016 and findings will be released to the community by the end of the school year.
