Save Doubleview Oval
SAVE DOUBLEVIEW PRIMARY SCHOOL OVAL!
Sign our petition & help us put an end to yet another short-sited and disastrous decision by the State Government.
The State Government and Education Department of WA plan to move the International School of WA (ISWA) from its current City Beach site, to Doubleview Primary School.
In order to facilitate this move, they plan to completely develop the top oval at Doubleview Primary. This means the new Doubleview primary School will be located on this top oval, and the current primary school site will go to ISWA and it 600+ new Kindy-yr12 students. The bottom smaller oval will be shared between the public primary school and the private ISWA.
This is the Governments knee jerk reaction to an obvious and desperate need for a high school in the western suburbs thanks to their massive lack of planning when they shut down all the high schools in the area.
THE DOUBLEVIEW PRIMARY SITE IS NOT THE ANSWER. THE DOUBLEVIEW COMMUNITY AND STUDENTS SHOULD NOT HAVE TO PAY THE PRICE FOR THIS LACK OF GOVERNMENT PLANNING
1. Doubleview has the least amount of green Space in comparison to other suburbs in the City of Stirling. Losing this limited amount of public green space in Doubleview CANNOT HAPPEN
2. The size of each proposed new school is well below planning commission policy for school site sizes and allowable space. This will lead to severe ‘overcrowding’ at your school and in turn affect student well being.
3. Increased traffic due to an extra 600 students attending ISWA, the Osborne Park Business Precinct and Scarborough Beach Development in an already crowded suburb with no parking CANNOT HAPPEN

There are better options! The Government even admitted this when they withdrew their original proposal back in March. See our Facebook Page for more information www.facebook.com/savedoubleviewoval
We call upon the State Government to stop this ISWA relocation from going ahead and consult on this and other better options which are more cost effective!
