Mr HIBBINS — Safe Schools is a successful and long-running program that once enjoyed support across all political parties, but it has been announced that a future coalition government would axe the Safe Schools program. 

Safe Schools addresses a critical need within our schools to ensure gender-diverse and same-sex-attracted students, who overwhelmingly face higher rates of bullying, mental health issues and suicide, are safe at school from bullying. Safe Schools has been the target of a far-right agenda within the Liberal Party that has sought to politicise and damage the program by deliberately misrepresenting the course's contents and aims. It is clear Victorians cannot trust the Liberal Party with equality. Safe Schools saves lives.
