NSW Premier Fails to Respond to SaveOOSH

NSW Premier Fails to Respond to Save OOSH Petition

The NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet has had over 43 days to respond to the petition to Save OOSH and communication from Network of Community Activities, sent to him on 22 December 2021. This document was sent in response to the NSW Government’s decision to put parent-managed and other not-for-profit Out of School Hours Care Services to tender. As of today we have had no response.

Why is the number 43 significant? This is the same number of P&Cs in NSW currently operating an OOSH .This means that only 5% of the OOSH Sector is now protected from tender. 46% of the OOSHs on Public Schools are irrecoverably impacted by this policy decision.

Messages from parents to the Premier and to the Minister for Education and Early Learning, the Hon. Sarah Mitchell, paint a clear picture: parents in NSW oppose the tendering of not-for-profit OOSHs on Public Schools.

Network is advocating to protect parent-managed and other NFP services in NSW. For more information on the Save OOSH Campaign and to learn what you can do, see www.saveoosh.com.au.
