Statement on Casuarina Senior College Adult Night Classes

As noted by Minister for Education, Selena Uibo:

“Casuarina Senior College (CSC) adult night classes will be funded to run for the next three years.

“I have heard loudly and clearly that residents of Darwin and surrounding areas value these classes and want them to remain.

“This morning, I asked the Chief Executive of the Department of Education to continue our commitment to the night classes.

“As a result of that conversation, CSC will receive a grant of $234,000 per year over the next three years to fund a restructured model, including a changed management structure.

“The restructured model will take into account the significant decline in enrolment numbers from 3047 in 2010 to 1807 in 2017.

“The Territory Labor Government is investing in education with a record budget this year of $1.14 billion.”
