Mentioned In Parliament...
Just an update regarding the Richard Marles visit to Geelong High School that I posted about a few weeks ago because of an email that I sent him earlier this year.
Marles' full speech can be viewed and even downloaded at the Australian Parliament Website.
"Geelong High School is Geelong's oldest state secondary school. It is an iconic educational institution in our city, that two years ago celebrated its centenary. What I saw shocked me. The food technology and art rooms in the Winstanley Wing are in a particularly bad way. In these poorly designed spaces I saw power outlets on walls next to sinks and seven stoves in a classroom intended for use by 22 students. The art rooms were in reality decommissioned science rooms that were supposed to be a short-term solution nine years ago. What is needed is a complete rebuild of the area."
