Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — My adjournment matter is for the Minister for Education, and the action I seek is for the minister to meet with the State High School for Prahran community group. This is a newly formed group of parents who are championing the idea of a new state secondary school for the Prahran electorate.

Following a round table that I organised of local parents and educators, the State High School for Prahran group was formed by members of the local community as the best way to take carriage of this critical issue. There is so much passion in the Prahran community for this school, and my constituents want to know that the government shares that passion.

Parents want the government to take them into their confidence regarding the school. There is a lack of information out there in the community regarding the school, and disappointingly now even misinformation is being spread. It would be of immense value to the Prahran families if the minister could meet with this group, provide an update on the progress of the school, hear about their aspirations for the new school and answer their questions.

My determination is to work with the local community to ensure that Prahran children and families can access a high-quality public education. This should not be political issue but a community issue. That is why it is so important that the minister meet with the local community group and give local families confidence that they can plan for their futures in Prahran.
