Mr FREGON (Mount Waverley) (19:09): (2531) My adjournment matter this evening is for the Minister for Education, and the action I seek is for the minister to come to the Mount Waverley district and visit one of our great secondary schools, Mount Waverley Secondary College—when possible of course. I was very pleased to hear the announcement from the Premier of the $2.7 billion building works package that will help build our economic recovery from this pandemic, and I am especially delighted with the announcement of the allocation of $795 200 from the planning and acceleration fund that will go towards planning for a future STEM centre at Mount Waverley Secondary College.


Now, Mount Waverley Secondary College is a fantastic school, led by principal Karen Wade and her excellent team of teachers, support staff and student leaders. I would like to reiterate her thanks to all the amazing teachers and support staff for the way they have supported each other and their students during this challenging time of remote learning, and that goes for all of the schools in my area. This announcement is great news for the residents of Mount Waverley district as we will fund, plan and build exactly what we say we will. I look forward to this vital planning work being undertaken so that we can get that much-needed STEM centre built.
