Loss of languages at Belconnen High and end of year

As the end of the year approaches, I took the opportunity in the Assembly today to thank the residents in my electorate, those who supported my re-election campaign, and my staff.

In the same speech, I raised concerns about changes to language curriculum at Belconnen High School. For years, Belconnen High has offered students instruction in French and Indonesian, allowing students from Hawker School and Weetangera Primary School (both French) and Florey Primary School (Indonesian) to continue their learning for another four years. But both of these languages have been dropped without explanation and in direct violation of the ACT Government’s Curriculum Requirements in ACT Public Schools Policy. I then called on Minister Berry, who is also a member for Ginninderra, to fix this problem before the new school year begins.
