WA Education Minister Sue Ellery on Wednesday said she was satisfied with the level of support children locked up in Banksia Hill were receiving, saying for the size of the cohort they had a “high proportion of staff”. The teaching hours are up from the 8.2 FTE provided by the Education Department in 2021, which also doesn’t include the Justice Department-employed educational staff. Additional FTE at the troubled juvenile detention facility was steadily increased across May, July, and September. Her spruiking of education services comes after Perth Children’s Court president Hylton Quail on Tuesday issued a series of scathing comments about the teaching hours offered to youth detainees at Banksia Hill. Judge Quail’s criticisms were sparked when sentencing a Perth boy who received less than four hours of education a week while spending nearly six months in solitary confinement across Banksia Hill and Unit 18. Of the 273 days the teen has spent in custody, 174 were spent in unlawful solitary confinement where he was locked in a cell for more than 20 hours a day. “We have increased the number of education staff working with those children,” Ms Ellery said while announcing a new modular build at Shenton College on Wednesday. “The FTE is around 11 or 12. For about 80 young people — that’s actually quite a high proportion of staff. “Each of those children has an individualised plan and we have staff who work with them, both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal. “Every child has an entitlement to an education, wherever they are. It will help them turn their lives around.” The infamous “Unit 18” is located at maximum-security adult prison Casuarina, and is where Banksia Hill detainees deemed the most disruptive have been sent since late July after damaging their cells. Judge Quail said the teen, who was in the small cohort moved to Unit 18 dubbed difficult and dangerous, had been “demonised” by the Government and given little access to education. Ms Ellery, however, said the State Government was working to improve education, including ensuring staff had access to professional development. She added that on-remand detainees had been more difficult to support as they were often only in the facility for three to four weeks.

There will always be limitations.” Ms Ellery said she welcomed any practical solutions that may come from WA Premier Mark McGowan’s youth justice summit but revealed no Education Department staff were attending. According to a 2020 report by WA Inspector of Custodial Services Eamon Ryan, education services had improved after his office had identified significant teacher shortages and limitations pre-2017.
