Helping Wallan kids become ‘Maths Masters’

The Andrews Government is helping pre-schoolers and their families in Wallan improve their maths skills through a new early years’ program. Labor Member for Yan Yean, Danielle Green, today announced that early childhood educators at Dudley Street Kindergarten, Wallan Kindergarten and Quality Kids Kindergarten will participate in Let’s Count training, where they will learn practical tips and get access to best-practice resources to help them develop children’s maths skills. Let’s Count helps early years’ educators engage families and their children in counting, measuring and identifying patterns. The program also helps parents and carers to introduce maths to children in a fun, simple way that can be incorporated into everyday life. About 500 educators in funded kindergartens will participate in the program over three years, and will help an estimated 14,000 pre-schoolers and their families. Ms Green said commencing in Semester 2, Let's Count will be rolled out across Victoria, including Wallan. “Let’s Count gives early childhood educators and parents simple and effective ways to make maths more interesting and fun for kids,” Ms Green said. “It is great to see the introduction of Let’s Count at Dudley Street Kindergarten, Wallan Kindergarten and Quality Kids Kindergarten to encourage parents, carers and educators to help kids see that learning is fun and engaging,” she said. Let’s Count was developed by Charles Sturt University Professor Bob Perry, Monash University Associate Professor Ann Gervasoni and The Smith Family to help children develop skills and a positive attitude towards maths before they begin primary school. In 2015, a longitudinal evaluation of the Let’s Count program showed it dramatically improved children’s maths skills, with children who participated in the program performing better across a range of mathematical tasks than children not involved in the program.   Media inquiries: Brian O’Connor 9432-9782.

SITE PURCHASED FOR NEW PRIMARY SCHOOL IN DOREEN

  The Andrews Labor Government has purchased land in Patience Road, Doreen for a new primary school immediately adjacent to the almost completed Orchard Road Early Learning Centre. Member for Yan Yean Danielle Green, today announced that purchase negotiations for the greenfields site were recently finalised, marking a major milestone for the project. The funding to acquire the 3.5 hectare site was allocated in the 2016-17 Victorian State Budget plus $13.8 million was allocated in this year's State Budget for the design and construction of Doreen's newest primary school. Building work is expected to start early in 2018 with the school opening its doors for students in 2019. The new P-6 School provisionally named Yarrambat Park Primary Sschool because of its proximity to Yarrambat State Park, is one of 56 new school projects being delivered by the Andrews Labor Government as it builds the Education State. It’s part of a $2.5 billion investment by the Government in the past three Budgets to improve classrooms, upgrade facilities and build new schools across the state. This school building boom has delivered more than 1,000 school upgrades and 56 new school projects across the state, supporting almost 5000 construction jobs for Victorians. Postcode 3754 has been a big part of this building boom with stages 3 & 4 now underway at HazelGlen College new schools Mernda Central College and Mernda Park Primary both opening in Term 1 this year See www.schoolbuildings.vic.gov.au​ for more details. Quotes attributable to the Member for Yan Yean Danielle Green “Families living in Doreen, south of Bridge Inn Road have been lobbying hard for a local primary school that they can walk their children to and I couldn't be happier that they've got their wish" “We’re investing almost $4 billion to make Victoria the Education State, so every community has access to great local schools and every child gets the chance to succeed.”   Brian O’Connor: 94329782

KICKING GOALS FOR NILLUMBIK GRASSROOTS SPORT

Nillumbik locals can look forward to more soccer, cricket and football thanks to the recent completion of sports ground upgrades at the popular Plenty War Memorial Park and Wattle Glen War Memorial Park. Member for Yan Yean, Ms Danielle Green MP visited both venues today to officially launch the upgrades made possible by a Victorian Government funding boost of $200,000 in total. Record numbers of people in Nillumbik, both male and female, are signing up to play grassroots sports and they deserve modern, safe and inclusive facilities closer to home. The redevelopment at Wattle Glen War Memorial Park has converted the old oval into a soccer hub featuring a new pitch and lighting. For the more than 1,200 players (over multiple venues) of the Eltham Eagles Soccer Club and Nillumbik Junior Soccer Club, the new developments provide more opportunity for twilight training and games. With soccer numbers booming in the area, the Victorian Government has also kicked in a further $100,000 from the Community Sports Infrastructure Fund to establish female friendly clubrooms at the Wattle Glen ground featuring two new accessible change rooms, umpires change areas and accessible car parking. Female-friendly change rooms mean local soccer can continue to develop more female players and field more junior girls’ and senior women’s squads in the future. Meanwhile Ms Green also joined the junior boys and girls from the Diamond Creek ‘Demons’ Football Club at Plenty War Memorial Park to officially open their new and improved oval complete with new drainage and a more durable all weather grass surface. The oval upgrade was made possible by a $100,000 Victorian Government grant. The new oval surface effectively weather proofs the oval, allowing clubs like the Demons and Plenty Cricket Club more chance to play the game they love, all year round on a reliable surface. And we are getting on with upgrading more grassroots sports facilities just like these across the state thanks to our $120 million Community Sports Infrastructure Fund The Fund includes $14 million for female friendly facilities to build or upgrade women’s change rooms. The Victorian Budget 2017/18 invested $332.8 million to improve sports facilities – from grassroots to elite – to cement Victoria as the sporting capital of the world. Since being elected, the Andrews Labor Government has invested over $740 million in initiatives to make sure our suburban and regional clubs and our iconic sporting stadiums have the modern facilities they need to grow. Quotes attributable to Member for Yan Yean Danielle Green “Grassroots clubs are the heart and soul of Victoria. They’ve nurtured some of our nation’s greatest sporting champions. We are giving them the facilities they need to continue this proud tradition.” “Sports like football, soccer and cricket are more popular than ever. But we need better sports grounds in places like Nillumbik to keep up with demand. We’re fixing that.” “By upgrading tired old grounds and ageing facilities we’re giving more opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to play the game they love.”   Brian O’Connor: 94329782
