Clarinda electorate achievements

Clarinda electorate achievements

Mr TAK (Clarinda) (13:04): The last four years have passed very quickly, but we have achieved a lot in the Clarinda district. We have invested in schools, kinder and TAFE. We have completed Huntingdale Primary School, stage 2; Clarinda Primary, stage 1; and Westall Primary, stage 1. We have also got stage 1 projects on the go at Westall Secondary, South Oakleigh College and Oakleigh South Primary as well as Westall Primary, stage 2. And there is so much more. For our youngest learners we have upgraded Washington Drive kinder in Oakleigh South and upgraded Sundowner and Farm Road kinders in Clarinda and Cheltenham. Kinder upgrades in Cheltenham North and Dingley Village are also underway. We have invested in the health infrastructure and services the community need. We have completed the Monash Medical Centre emergency redevelopment and have so many important and exciting projects underway, like the Monash heart hospital and Kingston Centre aged care facility rebuilds, the Monash mobile stroke unit and the Monash ED mental health and alcohol and other drugs hub.

In local sport, the Dales Park and Le Page Park pavilions are complete, with lighting delivered at 10 playing reserves, and the new South Oakleigh Bowling Club green looks amazing. There are the Mordialloc Freeway and Springvale Boulevard upgrades, parks upgrades and so much more.

Thank you to Peter, Joel, Nancy, Declan, Angie, Salazar and Rachiel from the Clarinda electorate office for their fantastic work, and thank you to the whole Clarinda community.
