Gippsland South The Nationals

O’Brien faces the music in Nyora

“Tougher than the Spring Street Press Gallery!”

That was the view of The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien after facing a grilling from Nyora Primary School students during a visit last week.

Mr O’Brien visited the school to talk about leadership and civics, and had a great time under questioning from the students from grade prep to year six.

“I always love visiting our local schools, particularly primary school students who ask all sorts of difficult questions and Nyora was no different.

“It’s a great little school and I was pleased to teach the students a little bit about my role and our democracy and to answer the many questions they had prepared and some they threw up on the day.”

Mr O’Brien also visited the next-door Nyora Recreation Reserve with reserve committee president Brett Hume, to view the work that’s been done over the years and what needs doing in future.

“The Nyora Rec Reserve change rooms are in a pretty poor state and not fit for modern use.

“This is the sort of facility that the State Government should be upgrading but instead the Labor Party has handed $225 million as a free gift to the AFL to renovate Etihad Stadium.

“The Nationals’ priority is to focus on grassroots sport and clubs like Nyora, which is having a great year in footy. I’ll continue to talk with the rec reserve as well as the football and cricket clubs about what needs to be done to ensure they have better facilities going forward.”
