A question to the Minister for Education: 

  1. What is the Department of Education’s approach to managing gender imbalances at co-educational schools where there is a significantly lower number of either boys or girls compared to members of the opposite sex?
  2. Does the Department have a policy around promoting gender balance in enrolments at schools?
  3. How does the Government respond to the instances where out-of-catchment enrolments at single-sex schools are creating gender imbalances in neighbouring schools?
