The 2022/23 Budget Speech

In my inaugural speech to the Parliament, I explained my vision for Hawthorn, a vision honed over a life spent in Catholic education, and whilst I have always found it my role to educate and instill a moral compass in our best and brightest it has been one of the great privileges of my life to advocate for these values on behalf of my electorate of Hawthorn.  I am proud that Hawthorn has received over $39 million for its schools this term. This budget includes $5.73 million for Hawthorn West Primary School, $367,100 for Camberwell Primary, $499,100 for Canterbury Primary School and $495,200 for Auburn High. These funds will be prudently spent on upgrading the toilet facilities at these various schools.
