Attn: Office of the Senior Practitioner

A recent media report (see http://a4.org.au/node/1826) claimed "senior practitioner Mandy Donley confirmed she was looking into"  "a fenced-off facility used to isolate a Canberra student with special needs".

There have been subsequent reports that this is not the case.

Please can you tell us whether or not the ACT Senior Practitioner is reviewing the school's practice and will report (publicly) on the findings?
