(Community Recognition Statement, 12 November 2014, Legislative Assembly, NSW Parliament)
On behalf of the Sydney electorate I congratulate Crown Street Public School on its 165th birthday. Today, together with the Federal member for Sydney, Tanya Plibersek, I joined in the celebrations, which included the opening of the school's new playground and library. Crown Street Primary has contributed to the fabric of the inner city for 165 years and the students, parents, teachers and staff reflect the diversity and values of the local area. I especially acknowledge the school's principal, Craig Nielsen, and parents and citizens president Ang Becroft on the great work they do for the school and local community.
