Hello there, I’ve always been very grateful
for the education that I received at Earlwood Primary School and then Canterbury Boys High
School. And as somebody who believes very strongly in freedom of parental choice when
it comes to education, I also firmly believe that fundamental to a good education system
in our country is to have strong public education and that is why I’m more than happy to be
part of this commemoration of Education Week in NSW and to wish everybody associated with
public education in NSW – teachers and students – the best of good fortune in the years ahead.
