Save St Joseph from Closing Down! All Invited Students, Parents, Teachers, Old Boys
EREA say that the school is broke. But yet in the latest annual general report (Available from the St Joey\'s Website), the school recorded a Net Profit of $165,323. The first Net Profit in years. The Board say that this decision has been coming for 10 years, but if you read every single Annual General Report and Newsletter for the last 10 years, you will find no mention of the school struggling in any sense. They say the demographic just isn\'t right for growth, but yet only a couple hundred meters away, Simonds Catholic College has recorded its highest ever enrollment, enrolling 157 students in 2008. They say they exhausted all avenues and consulted all people, but yet I can\'t find a single person who knew of the school going through such a process, that is before the letter was sent out by the EREA on Tuesday 26th of August. EREA think they can throw away 100+ years of tradition and get the keys to the school to implement a radical plan for the disadvantaged to get educated and rehabilitated (How does EREA justify such a model could be viable). Its not good enough. If you think this college is worth saving, please join the petition! Your comment must refrain from any personal attacks of any kind as that isn\'t in the St Joes Spirit and your comments will be deleted.
