We have so many excellent schools in the Glen Waverley district, and it is theatre season for our local high schools. Recently I attended the Emmaus College’s excellent production of Little Women at Alexander Theatre at Monash University. Thank you to principal Karen Jebb for inviting me to a truly great show. Last Friday, I attended Vermont Secondary College’s production of Chicago: Teen Edition, which was a fantastic performance, and I wish the cast and crew all the best over the continued season this week. Last Sunday I attended the final dress rehearsal for Brentwood Secondary’s production of School of Rock. I would like to thank the member for Hastings for attending Brentwood’s dress rehearsal last year for Strictly Ballroom, where he was able to pass on some great dancing and acting tips from his experience as Scott Hastings. Unfortunately I was unable to organise Jack Black this year; however, I know the School of Rock will rock. Thank you to director Joel Batalha for inviting me. Tickets are still available online, so make sure you do not miss the show. From acting, singing and dancing to lighting and stage production, it is inspiring to see such a high calibre of talent in arts in our local community.

On Monday I met with the facilities committee of Vermont Primary School to discuss the needs of the school. I would like to thank Lisa Portell, Nick Beckett and Joe Reilly for their continued advocacy for Vermont Primary. This is an excellent school that is currently a top 10 public primary school in Melbourne. Across the Glen Waverley district we are fortunate to have some of the best public schools. The Andrews Labor government will not rest on our laurels, and we will continue to deliver high-quality facilities, programs and education.
