Western Australia

Some further details

Just spotted, the press release from 21 March that prompted the story reported recently in Conductive World.

Inter alia, this states:

Class cancellations include all early intervention [pre-kindergarten], all outreach programs [which would be provided to children attending mainstream schools], as well as drastically reduced provision of CE programs to children otherwise wishing access to CE in kindergarten, pre-primary, lower and upper primary. This affects more than 60 families enrolled who were offered places in CE classes this school year, and the many more on the growing waitlist.

I was alerted to this by a posting on Lightnur’s blog. Lightnur is still the only active CE blogger in Australia and New Zealand.

She has also alerted me to an earlier statement of the problems of conductor-recruitment down under.
