MEMBERS STATEMENT – ANNE HAMILTON

Mr FREGON (Mount Waverley) (10:01): I rise to recognise and acknowledge an exceptional Mount Waverley district community member, crossing supervisor and volunteer Anne Hamilton. For the past 36 years Anne has been a well-known fixture at Pinewood Primary School, working tirelessly as a lollipop lady to help our young students and families safely cross Pinewood Drive on a daily basis. Anne knows all the children by name and has been that consistent, familiar, smiling face to greet students, rain, hail or shine. She has over the years also volunteered her time in the school canteen and as a parent-reader assisting in the classroom. Anne really does epitomise our Aussie community spirit. . As she hangs up her hi-vis jacket after nearly four decades of service, on behalf of the Mount Waverley district I would like to thank Anne for her unwavering dedication to her community—our community—and her care and kindness that is shown to all.
