FLEMINGTON EDUCATION PLAN

Mr PEARSON (Essendon) – Thank you, Speaker. To begin, I would like to congratulate you on your reappointment as Speaker. I will endeavour in the course of the 59th Parliament not to test your patience during question time in the way I tested it during the 58th Parliament. I direct my adjournment matter to the Minister for Education, and the action I seek is for the minister to facilitate a meeting between me, his office and his department to discuss the Flemington education plan. The Flemington education plan was funded in the May budget of this year, and it is a vitally important initiative for my community owing to the rate of population growth at schools like Mount Alexander College. I would therefore welcome the opportunity to develop a detailed understanding from the department of the work that has been undertaken to date.
