MEMBERS STATEMENT – MONASH CITY COUNCIL and GLENALLEN

Mr FREGON (Mount Waverley) (10:12): Following on from my members statement previously and my congratulations to the newly appointed Monash councillors, it was also fantastic to see women’s representation in the Monash council double from two to four, and I look forward to working with returned councillor Rebecca Paterson and the new councillors, Tina Samardzija, Nicky Luo and Anjalee de Silva. I am sure they will serve Monash well.

Mr FREGON: Following on from my budget statement yesterday, where I talked a little bit about Glenallen School, I also wanted to just really thank the principal, Michael Cole, and the art teacher, Deb Buzza, for their assistance with all of the students who have contributed to my Christmas cards this year. For those in the house that received my Christmas cards, the artwork had been done by the awesome students at Glenallen. I would also like to quickly acknowledge the recipients of the Norm Gibbs Community Award. For those who do not know Norm, he is a fantastic Waverley gent. Merry Christmas and happy festivus to Norm and Topsy. The award winners at Glenallen were Matthew Lim and Grace Lambrick, who have been exceptional students and will obviously go on to fantastic futures.
