Shooting goals for football and netball in Mitchell Shire

The Andrews Government is providing football and netball clubs in Mitchell Shire another chance to secure funding to upgrade grounds, courts and pavilions, and welcome more members than ever before. Labor MPs Danielle Green and Jaclyn Symes today urged local clubs to work with Mitchell Shire Council and apply for grants of up to $100,000 under the Country Football and Netball program. Ms Green said the Labor Government is getting on with giving all Victorians better access to the modern, safe and inclusive sport facilities, no matter where they live. “This is a great program because it works with non-metropolitan councils and sporting clubs to replace or upgrade ageing grounds and facilities,” Ms Green said. Ms Symes said football and netball clubs are the heart and soul of Mitchell Shire and the Labor Government was ensuring they get the facilities they need. “This program is about getting more people into sport and I urge clubs across Mitchell Shire to speak to council about applying for this funding,” Ms Symes said. Grants will go to projects such as ground resurfacing, new lighting, building more modern and safer netball courts and new pavilions with female-friendly change rooms. Applications for the Country Football and Netball Program are now open and close on 12 April 2018.

Early Works Underway On Doreen’s Newest School

Site preparation works have started on Yarrambat Park Primary School in Doreen ahead of its opening for local students in the 2019 school year thanks to the Andrews Labor Government. State Member for Yan Yean, Danielle Green today announced the early works had now started to get the site ready ahead of construction starting in February. The new school was designed in consultation with local residents, who got the opportunity to have their say during community engagement held during the design process. The Yarrambat Park Primary School is one of six new growth area schools being delivered across Melbourne as part of a multi-school tender with Kane Constructions, which will build Truganina East P-9; Sanctuary Lakes South P-9 (Point Cook); Burnside Primary; Yarrambat Park Primary (Doreen); Aitkin Hill Primary (Craigieburn); and Pakenham North East Primary. The Labor Government is investing more than $2.5 billion to improve classrooms, upgrade facilities and build new schools across the state. This school building boom has delivered more than 1,200 school upgrades and 56 new school projects across the state, supporting almost 5,000 construction jobs for Victorians. Quotes attributable to Danielle Green, Member for Yan Yean “When Yarrambat Park Primary School opens for students next year it will be the third school to open in the Doreen/Mernda area in as many years. The Andrews Labor Government is building new state of the art new schools across the 3754 postcode after years of neglect by the Liberals” “Yarrambat Park Primary School will be more than just a great new local school when it opens next year – it will be a hub that provides great services and facilities that everyone in the Doreen community can be proud of.”

Wallan kids benefit from School Breakfast Club

The Andrews Government’s expanded School Breakfast Clubs have now served more than three million meals across Victoria – giving children from families in need a healthier start to the day. Research has shown that since the program started, nine out of ten teachers have seen improved student concentration in the classroom, while seven out of ten teachers have noted improved attendance and more than eight out of ten teachers said they now had better relationships with their students. Ms Green said the Breakfast Club program had been an enormous success at Wallan Primary School. “Kids can’t get the best out of themselves without a decent breakfast. That is why the school’s breakfast club is so important for Wallan kids,” she said. “This program makes sure all kids have access to a nutritional breakfast which in turn helps their concentration and participation in class,” Ms Green said. “My fear is the Liberals and Nationals have indicated they want to cut programs like breakfast clubs if they win office in 2018,” she said. The delivery of the $13.7 million breakfast club commitment is another example of how the Andrews Government is tackling disadvantage and making things fair so that all children can reach their potential, regardless of their background or circumstances. Minister for Education, James Merlino, said the program was making a real difference in many schools across Victoria. “Students with a full stomach do better at school, it’s that simple. That’s why School Breakfast Clubs are so important,” Mr Merlino said.00
