Adjournment Debate – Gladstone Park Primary School

Mr J. BULL (Sunbury) (19:02:44) — (14 023) My adjournment matter is for the Minister for Education. The action I seek is for the minister to commit funds to upgrade Gladstone Park Primary School. This school is one that the minister has indeed visited. It plays an invaluable role in the Gladstone Park community. From a number of visits to the school it is clear that both the teachers and the students are working incredibly hard and achieving terrific outcomes. After discussions with the school principal, Tony Malgioglio, and a tour around the school, it is clear that an injection of capital funding would certainly assist the school greatly.

I am incredibly proud of this government’s commitment to the Education State in Sunbury and indeed right across the state of Victoria. Whether it is equity funding, the Shared Facilities Fund, breakfast clubs, the Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund, free eye tests or of course our record investment in school infrastructure, this government and this minister have done an extraordinary job in getting it done in education. I again take this opportunity to ask the minister to commit funds to Gladstone Park Primary School.
