I’ve been particularly active on schools and education and have met with local parents, principals, Department officials and the Minister. Our kids deserve a world-class education and I am committed to improving our schools and expanding educational opportunities for everyone.
With a projected increase of over 1000 students over the next 5 years in our electorate alone, the State government must act urgently to ensure our children have the school space and resources they need to get the best possible start in life. I’ve also been advocating for a more family friendly sibling policy and the expansion of Sydney Secondary School’s Leichhardt campus.
