There are tremendous enrolment pressures facing schools in Gungahlin, particularly in Franklin and Harrison. Many families are being turned away from local schools with parents being told to enrol their children elsewhere.

The 2016 Census data showed Gungahlin was the second-fastest growing region in Australia, however there has not been an appropriate level of investment by the ACT Government in school infrastructure to meet new population demands.

The Canberra Liberals recognise that there are insufficient places available in local schools, and through this petition are calling for action from the ACT Government to address the shortage for the benefit of the Gungahlin community.
