(Community Recognition Statement, 5.53pm 21 November 2013, Legislative Assembly, NSW Parliament)
I acknowledge the 130th successful year for the Sydney Girls High School in Moore Park in my electorate.
This is the oldest State girls' school in New South Wales, with a long tradition of educating girls to be active and engaged citizens who contribute to the community. The strong community spirit is evident in the old girls union, school council, parents and citizens, and leadership amongst current students, along with inspiring long-term leadership from Principal Andrea Connell. Significant community fundraising is making possible a major project in the Governors' Centre, an exciting new building to be shared with Sydney Boys High School. The school will soon hold its presentation day, which is always a great opportunity to meet students excelling across the board in academia, sport, culture and creative activities. I congratulate the school on another successful year of learning and excellence.
