The Minister for Education and Training, the Hon Sue Ellery MLC, has announced a community consultation to gather the views of local parents and community members on the current structure of public schools in the Cannington and Maddington area.

This consultation will consider the structure of education at Cannington Community College, Cannington Community Education Support Centre, Sevenoaks Senior College and Yule Brook College.

At present:

  • Cannington Community College caters for students in Kindergarten to Year 10. Students then need to enrol at Sevenoaks Senior College or another school for Years 11 and 12.
  • Sevenoaks Senior College caters for students in Years 11 and 12. A range of programs are offered.
  • The Cannington Community Education Support Centre caters for students in Years 7 to 12 across two sites. Students in Years 7 to 10 attend the Cannington Community College site and students in Years 11 and 12 attend the Sevenoaks Senior College site.

You are invited to have your say, through an online survey, where you can select one of the following options:

Option 1
