Cam­bridge Mayor Si­mon Withers says the Ed­u­ca­tion Depart­ment needs to lock down a site for the new City Beach High School so par­ents can start plan­ning for their chil­dren’s fu­ture ed­u­ca­tion. Gov­ern­ments never plan ahead. Sure a few years back there was low stu­dent num­bers but as peo­ple age they go else­where and younger peo­ple come back and many newer houses go­ing up as well. They need to build the new one to left of Bold Park Pool where the pool will get peo­ple go­ing to it. There are new lo­cal shops be­ing built around the pool, so why not take ad­van­tage of that. That cut off road where it has a 70km/h speed they could place more shops along that up­per side where i t’s needed. - Colin Stan­ley But they only closed the old City Beach High School in 2005.

- Mar­cia King Funny how the City Beach end of Cam­bridge gets all the ma­jor works. The West Leed­erville end is the poor cousin, apart from Julie Bishop’s West Leed­erville Pri­mary School. We did get the nar­row­ing of Cam­bridge Street. It cost lo­cal busi­nesses huge amounts in tak­ings, even forced busi­nesses to close at the same time, mov­ing lo­cal traf­fic passed the pri­mary school and Lake Monger Drive. Who makes th­ese de­ci­sions? - Pe­ter Bas­tow
