Since I was elected in 2014, I've played a big role in the campaign to get our state government to build a new public primary school in the Docklands. I was incredibly proud when the school opened this year! It has already been a huge success, with over 230 children enrolled. A new kindergarten has also opened next door to Docklands Primary, making drop off and pick up even easier for families with young children.

I recently visited the new Docklands Primary School to present the Australian, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags at a school assembly full of bright young minds and two newly elected school captains. I’m now helping them with issues such as getting a new crossing supervisor, better pedestrian crossings around the school and more.
