Our education facilities work in close collaboration with government; our relationship is mostly cemented through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).

Following education facility assessments in 2014, a recommendation was made to exit running of Kindergartens and VTC (and for these engage any willing private provider to run under a lease agreement); and to continue working with government under the current MOU (with responsibility to run being progressively given to government).
