The McGowan Government’s partial reversal of its cruel suite of education cuts is a show of regional Western Australia’s “people power”. However many people remain bitterly disappointed that a number of Labor’s controversial cuts will still go ahead, including the planned abolition of Moora Residential College.
Moora Residential College (also known as St James) is home to 32 students and employs 11 staff. A core part of the Moora town, it also generates work for many local businesses, supporting the local economy as well as providing a home to students who might otherwise be forced to travel hundreds of kilometres to and from school each day.
Losing the College will not only mean students that board there will be forced to relocate for school, it will threaten Central Midlands Senior High School's ability to deliver classroom education from Years 7-12, potentially forcing it to become reclassified as a district high school.
