SCHOOLS FOUND TO BE OVER ENROLMENT CAP

Concerns have been raised about overcrowding in Hunter schools, ahead of next Monday’s return to full-time classes.

Cessnock MP Clayton Barr says data in budget estimates shows ten schools in his electorate are over the student enrolment cap, some by more than 100 pupils.

“All these questions have come to a head right now, because the data’s been made available at a time when we’re dealing with a virus that requires social distancing, it’s just not good enough.”  – Clayton Barr, Member for Cessnock.
