Grc Peakhurst Grant Presentation

Mr MARK COURE (OatleyMinister for Multiculturalism, and Minister for Seniors)

——Speaker, I rise today to recognise a fantastic school in my local area, Georges River College Peakhurst. Late last year, I visited the school where I was pleased to see that a grant from the New South Wales Government worth $1350 was going to be put to good use. This funding is going towards purchasing a portable workstation and storage unit for the woodworking department at the school. This funding is fantastic news for the students, teachers and parents who make up the GRC Peakhurst school community as it will upgrade their existing capabilities to teach Technology and Applied Studies subjects. Speaker, I strongly support the improvement of hands-on learning subjects in our schools. This investment helps to prepare our students for life after school, whether they go to university, TAFE or enter the workforce, it is important that we provide support for all avenues in life. I would like to thank Principal Diane Wilson and P&C member Anissa Kapadia for their advocacy on this matter and I look forward to working with them on future projects.
