Essendon Hockey Club

Mr PEARSON (Essendon)  —  I direct my adjournment debate to the Minister for Education, and the action I seek is for the Victorian School Building Authority to meet with the Essendon Hockey Club to discuss what potential role the Essendon Hockey Club can play in relation to the development of the Flemington education plan. Just briefly, the schools in my community are experiencing rapid population growth. It is a built-up, inner-urban area, and there is an opportunity to try and better utilise some of the public open space in the surrounding vicinity for the benefit of the students. I have spoken with David Landgren from the Essendon Hockey Club, and he would welcome the opportunity to discuss what role the club can play as a potential site for schoolchildren and students to be able to utilise during the course of the school day.
