Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) : I rise to express sympathy to the students and parents at Presentation College Windsor (PCW), who were shocked and heartbroken at the news that their school would be closing at the end of next year. I fully support the efforts of the parents and the school community to either keep the school going or find an alternative solution. I urge full transparency from the school owners and from the Catholic Education Office as to the reasoning behind the closure and their financial situation, and I would urge the government to do what it can to insure that the site that PCW is on remains solely for education and is not sold off for any residential or commercial purposes.
