On the 15th November, State Member for Caulfield David Southwick MP hosted the Shadow Minister for Education the Hon Nick Wakeling MP, on a schools visit in the electorate of Caulfield.
In the morning both MPs visited Beth Rivkah College for a roundtable discussion with Principals and Presidents of Victorian Jewish Day schools. The issue of school security was a key issue discussed.
“Daniel Andrews needs to outline his plan for security funding in Jewish Day Schools and commit his ongoing support,” Mr Southwick said.
Later in the afternoon David and the Shadow Minister visited both Caulfield Primary School and Caulfield Junior College. Discussions focussed on the importance of second language education and the great benefits it offers to overall learning.
“We had the pleasure of meeting some of the schools’ students who are benefitting from a diverse education, equipping them with a great skillset for the future,” Mr Southwick said.
