NEWS RELEASE.

20 August 1999

"WHERE WILL THE CHILDREN LEARN?"

The supplement to the EIS volume 3, page 16.8 shows a table of schools and child care facilities subjected to high risk levels relating to the map shown on the next page fig 16.1. (Please also note Warragamba Dam Wall within the zone)

Given that PPK were supplied with comprehensive lists of schools and other facilities from FRAAN and other community groups, the lack of inclusion of the following schools and care facilities is inexcusable.

Option A shows a total 5 facilities affected - Missing facilities are:

- Anowah centre for care of intellectually and physically disabled persons.

- Do Re Mi Day Care and Kindergarten

- Children’s Cottage Kemps Creek

- Emmanaus Retirement Village

- Emmanaus Catholic College

- Trinity primary school

- Mamre Christian College

- a new high school (being constructed now) corner of Cross and Devonshire Rds - Kemps Creek

(the scale of the map is too general to determine accurately, but it is apparent that there would be some schools in Prospect and Seven Hills which would be affected)

 

Option B shows a total of 4 facilities affected - Missing facilities are:

- Horsley Park Public School

- Anowah centre for care of intellectually and physically disabled persons.

- Do Re Mi Day Care and Kindergarten

- Children’s Cottage Kemps Creek

- Emmanaus Retirement Village

- Emmanaus Catholic College

- Trinity primary school

- Mamre Christian College

- a new high school (being constructed now) corner of Cross and Devonshire Rds - Kemps Creek

(again, the scale of the map is too general to determine accurately, but it is apparent that there would be some schools in Prospect and Seven Hills which would be affected)

 

Option C shows a total of 11 facilties - Missing facilities are:

- Leppington Public School

- Ederslie High School

- Mawarra Public School

(There are obviously schools omitted through St Marys, Dunheved and the Wilmot area. Again, the map is too general to give an accurate list)

Given that the EIS supplement shows development at the scale of 35 dwellings per hectare (see map EIS vol 1, fig 10.1, and chapter 7 EIS supplement) there would obviously be some form of learning facility for these people as well - unless PPK will have developed ESP at home learning methods by that time!

We note too, that the State Development Department has forecast 2.25 million people to live in Sydney’s West by 2011, (article Daily Telegraph Feb 21, 1996) these people too appear to be omitted.

What can we say?
