Save Dripstone Children's Centre!

Dear Chief Minister,

Our children, their families and our staff need your support.

Dripstone Children’s centre is a not-for-profit, community run childcare centre, based in Brinkin. We provide high-quality education and care for 68 children each day. Our centre is a much-loved community institution which supports working families of the northern suburbs.  

We are currently operating without a lease and have been so since October 2008. We are incredibly frustrated that after 2 ½ years of trying to negotiate with the Department of Education & Department of Infrastructure, we have failed to secure a new lease. This leaves our community centre vulnerable, and we have no idea what the future holds for Dripstone.

Chief Minister we need your help to ensure the future of this vital community institution, by helping us to:

  • Secure a 10-year lease that will ensure that the centre continues its valuable work in the community (our last lease was 15 years), and
  • Ensure we have clear maintenance schedule that will ensure our building is safe and well maintained. 

Oh behalf of future generations of young Territorian’s that we will educate and care for, thank you for your consideration of this important issue.

Today: Dripstone is counting on you
