Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I recently attended a ceremony to commemorate the renaming of Windsor Primary School, which since 2001 has been known as Stonnington Primary School. Windsor primary is one of the oldest schools in the state and has been known by several names, so it is great to see them return to the name that best fits their identity and represents the local suburb of Windsor. This is following on from Windsor Community Children's Centre, which last year changed its name from Swinburne Prahran Community Children's Centre. The new name better suits their identity and their role in our local community. Windsor is a great suburb to be part of, and I am glad to see the local primary school and community childcare centre embracing the Windsor name.
