Lyndhurst Secondary College

Lyndhurst Secondary College

Gary MAAS (Narre Warren South) (19:34): (6) I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you, Deputy Speaker, on your elevation to that position.

For my adjournment matter I wish to raise this for the attention of the Minister for Education. It concerns Lyndhurst Secondary College. The action I seek is that the minister provides further information on the Andrews Labor government’s election commitment to upgrade and modernise the school. As a result of the electoral redistribution, I now have Lyndhurst Secondary College in the seat of Narre Warren South, and it is really terrific to have been re-elected so that the government can deliver on its election commitment.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the member for Cranbourne, who previously represented the school and spent time introducing me to the hardworking principals in my new area, including Eloise Haynes from Lyndhurst Secondary College. Ms Haynes and her staff and students’ hard work has been recognised recently by the Age newspaper. They selected Lyndhurst Secondary College as a Schools that Excel winner for government schools in Melbourne’s south. I am so glad that Lyndhurst Secondary College will be receiving $13.6 million for upgrade and modernisation works, and the upgrade will help the school to continue to deliver the best education and facilities for staff, students and the school community. I would appreciate if the minister could provide any further information on the election commitment to upgrade Lyndhurst Secondary College and I look forward to sharing the minister’s response with my community.
