Adjournment: Mickleham Primary School

Ms SPENCE (Yuroke): My adjournment matter is for the Minister for Education, and the action I seek is for the minister to provide me with an update on the facilities at Mickleham Primary School. Mickleham primary has a tight-knit school community, serving both families living in rural areas as well as those in new housing developments on Melbourne’s fringe. In recent years local population growth has greatly increased the number of enrolments at the school, placing pressure on the school’s infrastructure. I have been working with the school community in relation to these matters, and I am pleased that to date a number of necessary improvements have been made to support the school’s growing population. Recently I again met with the principal, Sue Crispe, to tour the school, and it remains the case that there is a definite need for more facilities; in particular, administration rooms, staff toilets and a multipurpose space. I would greatly appreciate any information that the minister can provide to me on behalf of the Mickleham Primary School community regarding the school’s facilities, and I look forward to sharing his response.
