There are fears sport in Hunter’s public schools will be jeopardised following the O’Farrell Government’s decision to cut 1.7 billlion dollars from the education budget.
The decision has resulted in staff cuts from the School Sports Unit, the group which organises and runs representative school sport in NSW.
This could mean that school sport carnivals will face the axe.
Wallsend MP Sonia Hornery says the government has got it’s priorities all wrong.
