Community Concern Warranted Regarding Future of Wyong Grove Site

 

Member for Wyong, David Harris MP, today called on the Education Minister Hon Adrian Piccoli MP to clarify the future of the old Wyong Grove Public School site in Wyong.

“Last Thursday a big sign went up indicating the land was going to auction, by Friday the sign was removed and today, it’s back up again.”

“There has been a large public outcry and a petition started on Change.org to try and keep the site for community use.”

“We have several organisations using the site and Wyong Shire Council has spent considerable money improving facilities there.”

“The Wyong Drama Group and Wyong Musical Society have both expressed concerns about a potential sale and the NSW Teachers Federation are certainly opposed to such a move.”

“The Minister should publically state what their intentions are and I have written to him this morning seeking further information.”

“Whilst I oppose any sale, if the land is to be sold, I have called for community organisations/Wyong Shire Council to be given a preference so that this valuable community land continues to have public use.”

“I am aware that Wyong Council, the Salvation Army and Darkinjung Land Council have expressed interest in the site.”

“I have also called for any proceeds of a sale to be reinvested into local school projects such as Darkinjung Land Council science labs and a new administration block for Tacoma Public School.”
