William Ruthven Secondary College

I  want  to congratulate  William  Ruthven Secondary College  on its exhibition entitled ‘Our Place — A Multicultural  School  in  a Multicultural Melbourne  and  World’ on display this week in Queen’s Hall. It is great, Speaker, and I am sure you have had a look at  the display. It shows what our government schools are all about: a commitment to excellence in all areas. I was  very proud to make a  commitment on behalf of the  Labor opposition that if elected in November, Labor will provide $10 million  for  the rebuild of William Ruthven Secondary College. I  also want to put  on  the record my thanks  to  my friend and colleague  the  member for  Thomastown  for organising  the  school’s display, and I thank her for her commitment to her local community.
