EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION

September 3, 2020

The Andrews Labor government is repairing, expanding and building new kinders so every child can access three-year-old kinder as the groundbreaking program rolls out across the state.

I’m pleased to announce that a new early learning centre will be built in Rosanna, thanks to a $1.5 million contribution from the Andrews Labor government in partnership with Goodstart Ltd.

The $4.47 million facility is estimated to be completed in late 2021, ahead of the statewide rollout of funded universal three-year-old kinder in 2022.

The old and substantial former Uniting Church venue in Bellevue Avenue will be the site of this important investment for Rosanna families. The kindergarten development will be a welcome enrolment feeder for places like Rosanna Primary School

DAVID MCKENZIE OAM

June 16, 2020

I rise to offer heartfelt congratulations on behalf of the Ivanhoe electorate to David McKenzie, OAM, a recipient of that award in the recent Queen’s Birthday honours list. It was a big time, early June, and of course on 30 May, David celebrated his 87th birthday.

As a former MHR for Diamond Valley—more familiar to people in this place as the seat of Jagajaga in our federal Parliament—in those turbulent, exciting and reforming days of the Whitlam government he was our local MP from 1972 to 1975 and set the gold standard for representation that we have seen maintained by his successors, the Honourable Peter Staples and the Honourable Jenny Macklin.
