Woy Woy loses demountable classroom

Woy Woy Public School has lost one of its demountable classrooms.

"Sadly, as it became apparent that our student numbers have fallen, we were informed that we would lose a demountable classroom," school principals Ms Ona Buckley and Mr Dan Betts wrote in the school newsletter.

"This was designated as a quick turn-around.

"Over the last week, we have had to make a decision on what demountable building that would be and follow through on the appropriate actions to have it ready for transport to another location where it is needed.

"Careful consideration was given to the decision as to what building and what benefits would happen as a result for our school.

"The oldest demountable building on our site was chosen.

"It is a classroom building that did not have access to a water source for students drink bottles or the use and clean-up of art equipment.

"However it meant the re-location of our 3-6E class.

"We made the decision to re-house them into the end classroom located on the B Block veranda where Kindergarten and Year 1 are.

"We were using this as a Learning Assistant Support Teacher (LAST) work area and storage.

"So you can imagine how busy everyone has been moving everything around because we wanted the 3-6E class to be able to operate out of their new space on Monday, May 25, when all students returned to school.

"The area left by the removal of the demountable building will open up the middle of our school and give us the opportunity to create a suitable play space for our children with special needs and some outdoor learning areas for all our students." The building was scheduled to be decommissioned on Monday, May 25, with power, water and cabling being cut off and secured, ready to be craned out.

"The school has certainly been a busy old place," the principals said.

"It makes it hard at times for us here at school, as we have seen this week, with the media releasing information about the return of students to school before the Department of Education was informed of the decision and before they could inform schools."
