Back to school for local MP
The future is in good hands according to The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien following his recent visits to Tarwin Lower and Leongatha Primary Schools.
Mr O’Brien recognised school captains at Tarwin Lower and spoke to all students there and to Grade 3 students at Leongatha Primary School as part of their democracy studies.
“It’s always a great pleasure to address primary school students because they have so many intelligent and challenging questions,” Mr O’Brien said.
“This time around at Leongatha and Tarwin Lower was no different with everything ranging from - Is your job hard? to How much do you get paid?
“I’m constantly impressed at how insightful our young people are with their questions about politics and civics and many of the questions I received indicate just how much interest our young people show in the political process.
“It concerns me that society in general is not well informed about our own democracy and I’m always pleased to help educate our local students. I can certainly say from my visits to Leongatha and Tarwin Lower that those students are on the right track.”
Mr O’Brien thanked the teachers and students for inviting him to their school and wished them all well for their studies in 2018.
