Disappointment over Seaspray primary school closure

The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien said he was disappointed to learn of the effective closure of Seaspray Primary School.

Mr O’Brien said that while it was clear that current numbers at the school are low, this always has the prospect of rebounding.

“It’s always disappointing to lose a primary school, even if it is technically only going to a “nonoperational” status,” Mr O’Brien said.

“While student numbers at the school have dropped and have been fairly low for a number of years now, I am concerned to hear parents saying that there has not been much effort by the Government to secure a new principal after the current principal left.

“I hope both the Government and the department will genuinely keep the door open for Seaspray to reopen if there are new opportunities for students and a new principal in future.”
