Mr SOUTHWICK (Caulfield) — I recently visited Ripponlea Primary School and was given a tour of the school and its facilities. I would like to take the opportunity to congratulate Kylie Jeffers and Nicole Brownley for their work on the Ripponlea Kindergarten Committee. Kylie led the committee in 2009 in its application for a $200 000 grant for the kindergarten, and in 2010 Nicole continued this great work. I congratulate the school principal, Sue Newton, as well as Kylie Jeffers and Nicole Brownley for their great work at the school.
While the school’s community and parent leaders are dedicated, they have been let down by the incompetent rollout of the federal government’s Building the Education Revolution money. A new building stands empty due to its being unsafe for students to use. It requires an additional railing.
The SPEAKER — Order! The member’s time has expired.
