Birgitte Maibom - Learning Links

Mr MARK COURE (Oatley)

—Speaker, I rise to congratulate and thank Birgitte Maibom, CEO of the Learning Links organisation. Birgitte recently announced her departure from Learning Links after 10 years of dedicated service to our community. As a charitable, not-for-profit organisation, Learning Links supported almost 5000 children and over 3000 families in 2012-2022, delivering outcomes that improved the learning and wellbeing of local kids. During her time as CEO, she oversaw the significant expansion of new learning centres across Sydney. New centres were opened in Bella Vista in 2017, Alexandria in 2019 and Gledswood Hills in 2019, with the Liverpool Centre upgraded in 2018. Furthermore, Birgitte oversaw the funding to establish a Prep 4 Preschool early intervention playgroup in Oatley. This aims to provide support for families in my area, allowing their little ones to transition smoothly into an early education setting. Alongside the hard work of her dedicated team, Birgitte has continued to support children and young people to achieve the very best in life. I wish Birgitte all the best in her future endeavours, as she seeks out new and exciting opportunities. Your contributions were second-to-none, and you should be incredibly proud!
