Official statement issued by Department of Education and Training confirming outcomes of a Meeting on Friday 6th March.
At the 6 March 2020 meeting between the Department of Education and Training, the Whittlesea U3A, the Men’s Shed and Peter Lalor Secondary College, it was acknowledged that each party is committed to supporting the local community and that there is broad alignment with the intentions of each party to resolve present issues. It was agreed that a process of professional mediation will occur between the school, Whittlesea U3A and the Men’s Shed to assist with the issues of concern. An independent mediator will support the repair of the relationships and the resolution of issues relating to access, parking and toilet facilities, taking into account relevant Department of Education’s compliance with policy, legislation and the requests of the Whittlesea U3A and the Men’s Shed. The Department will support the school to commence the process, with advice on next steps to be provided soon.
