O’Brien tables 1089 Foster PS petitions

The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien, has tabled 1089 petitions in Parliament calling for the rebuild of Foster Primary School.

Mr O’Brien said the petitions were a great credit to the school council led by Matt Wallis, Principal Lorraine Gurnett and the entire staff and student body. 

“These petitions deliver a clear message to the Melbourne Labor Government that Foster wants its school rebuilt. Foster has a population of around 2,000 so more than half have put pen to paper to show their support for a new school.

“It’s at the point where the school can‘t continue to spend money on maintenance for things that really need to be replaced.

 “Foster’s environment is not conducive to good learning for our kids and needs to be upgraded. I call on Daniel Andrews to deliver the funding we need for this school in the next budget or at the very least deliver the design and development money that the school needs to plan for new buildings.”

Mr O’Brien thanked the school community and local businesses which had hosted the petitions and congratulated the entire Foster community for supporting the new school push.
