Save Bargo Public School Oosh and Vacation Care

This petition made change with 283 supporters!

The small but tight knit community of Bargo has been left in shock after being informed that an amazing business we all rely on to care for our children out of school hours and in the holidays has to close it's doors due to a rent increase of over 600% by the Dept of Education , on top of this we are then informed that they will not be seeking interest from any other businesses to replace it.

Being a small town we simply do not have another immediate option for our children, the small amount of services that do provide care in our town are already at capacity.

This issue will cause upwards of 35 families to have to either lose an income, change their children's school or even worse to leave them at home alone or on school grounds out of hours, which is not something any parent would want to do but unfortunately may be left with no other option.

This is not a position any family should be in and one that we are struggling to come to terms with especially so close to Christmas. Not to mention the parents who were already nervous to have their young children starting Kindergarten in the new year and now have this added stress.

Instead of coming up with a solution it seems that the Dept of Education are happy for the service that was being run out of the school hall to cease all together.

We need to stand together as a community to ensure the safety of our children.

Children's safety should not have a price tag and if we do not make ourselves heard we are not doing our job as their caregivers.
