By Jennifer BowersThe university has been asked to provide more details on how it will cover the cost of running a community school after students, staff and faculty rallied to call on the state government to provide funding for a new school.
The students and staff group, the Spartansville Community College, which is based in the southern state of South Australia, said it had gathered the support of thousands of people in the community over the past week.
The group has been working to get the money to the school through the state’s School Funding Commission.
The state government last year announced it was considering a new public school in the Spinlands.
But the decision was postponed until at least October to allow for more research and consultation.
A spokesperson for the Department of Education said it was not available to comment on the situation at the time.
A spokeswoman for the department said it “looks forward to hearing from the Spanyards community about the next steps to be taken in their case”.
