(Community Recognition Statement, Legislative Assembly, NSW Parliament)
On behalf of the electorate of Sydney, I congratulate Glenmore Road Primary School on its 130th birthday, which was celebrated on Sunday 8 September.
The school has very diverse alumni and during its 130 years has actively contributed to making Paddington the strong community it is today. The school values the community's participation in helping it to achieve the best outcomes for its students. Its special strengths include student welfare, performing arts, computing, philosophy and Italian. It was an honour to attend the birthday celebrations and to cut the birthday cake along with the school principal and the head of the school's parents and citizens association. I commend all the students, parents, teachers and the wider community for making this celebration a success, and I thank the school for its contribution to Paddington.
