Give Murrumbateman the Primary School it Deserves

More than 600 children get on busses from Murrumbateman each day to go to school in Canberra or Yass. Despite endless campaigning from locals for the re-establishment of a local school, the NSW government continues to say "no". The NSW Education Minister Rob Stokes  says NSW will build 12 new schools... but not one in Murrumbateman.

This year the ACT government has limited the schools that children from outside the ACT can attend. The Yass Primary Schools are at capacity.

Do you think that Murrumbateman, the fasted growing part of the Yass Valley should have a school as part of the social infrastructure for the community?   Schools act as community hubs. Labor committed to a school in 2015 and still believes Murrumbateman needs its own school now, to take young children off the Barton Highway.
