Mr HIBBINS — There is a lot of excitement in our community as progress toward the opening of the new Prahran high school continues. The new school has come a long way in the last four years, from securing a location and getting the extra funding required to construction, which is now taking shape on High Street. We now welcome the appointment of the new principal, Nathan Chisholm, who is engaging closely with our community. This school has been a real community effort, particularly by the School for Prahran community group and the new school planning group. It certainly has been one of my top priorities as the local MP. I look forward to further progress towards the school opening in 2019.
