Members statements – Sunbury Shared Facility

Mr J. BULL (Sunbury) (10:03:17) — Last week I joined the Premier, the Minister for Early Childhood Education and Minister for Youth Affairs, the Hume mayor and councillors, the school principal, school council members, students and local residents to announce that the Andrews Labor government is creating a community super-site in Sunbury. The site will be located at Sunbury Heights Primary School and Sunbury Downs College, linking a brand-new kindergarten to schools, family services and community facilities so families have the opportunity to access all of those services in one handy location.

The Premier, the minister and I announced an additional $3.3 million on top of the $4.2 million for the shared facility — a fantastic announcement for my community. This comes on top of $3.9 million for Sunbury Downs, which is working with Kennedy Nolan architects on new designs for the wonderful school upgrade. This is an exciting project for the families and the kids in Sunbury, and we are getting on with the job of building and upgrading these facilities.
