Kindergarten at Anakie State School and a children's day care facility at Sapphire

Eligibility - Queensland citizens

Principal Petitioner:

Tammy Haake
25 Richardson Street

Total Signatures - 288

Sponsoring Member: Vaughan Johnson MP

Posting Date: 17/05/2012

Tabled Date: 17/05/2012

Responded By: Hon John-Paul Langbroek MP on 15/06/2012

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

The petition of citizens of Queensland draws to the attention of the House the need for a co-located kindergarten at the Anakie State School and the re-opening of the day care facility at Sapphire.  Currently, children in the townships of Rubyvale, Sapphire, Anakie and Willows on central Queensland's Gemfields have no facilities.  This is an impediment to the children's development and education.  It is also an impediment to their parents' and carers' capacity to enjoy paid employment in an area with a chronic shortage of workers.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to provide funding and facilities to rectify the situation.
